Brave pilots fight Colorado fires by admin | Jun 29, 2012 | Military, Water bombers | 2 comments Incredible aerial footage of Colorado wildfire tankers (radio chatter included). USAF National Guard C-130’s line up in positions behind the spotter aircraft. This type of flying requires great precision. Brave crews doing dangerous work.

Trooper on July 3, 2012 at 8:02 am Agreed. The 415 is purpose built for firefighting and can do 125 sorties a day. The C-130 can carry a bigger payload but has to use an airfield and takes much longer to load. Unfortunately a C-130 just crashed and now the other 7 are grounded. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/02/waldo-canyon-fires-2012-f_n_1645060.html Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.Comment Name Email Website By using this form you agree with the storage and handling of your data by this website. * Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
