Is that a fire-fighting plane?

If so, is it the Army that's in charge of extinguishing forest fires in Spain?

The old bridge has been replaced by this one, closer to the track, but with more backlight and occasional streetlight.
This is the first video of unofficial opening of the new bridge.

I would even say A340-600. Very nice! I flew one of them on MAD-LIM (and the same one back from LIM to MAD).
