Almost makes me want to go back to flying for a living.

Back in 2004 I was flying a Navajo through the Yukon Flats north of Fairbanks Alaska. It was fire season, and there were 4 of these airplanes bouncing back and forth between Bettles and Fairbanks (where ever they had the least chance of getting stuck in IFR conditions). During this flight I had the chance to watch them do their thing as they picked up water from one of the many many lakes and then drop them on the hot spots nearby. A literal congo line of water bombers scooping water and then dropping it on a fire.

It was a pretty special thing to see.

With turbines this should be the 415. I worked on the radials from the 215 back in aviation college.
