Fire Bombing

Recommended Posts


The funny thing is, i´m a paratrooper. And it was cool when i left for summer leave, because i wouldn´t get anywhere close to a freaking air force plane trying to kill me for a month (you know, now it is kind of funny i thought C-130s were cool before i jumped from them) So i was in the beach a couple of weeks ago in my awesome tire shaped float taking a nap when one of these crappers pulled a "Penny Benjamin" on me to load water. I almost effing drowned and shat myself, much to the amusement of bywatchers.

Always impressive to see these CL-415T in action (and sometimes the old CL-215). I'm from Sept-Îles (Québec) and had the ''chance'' to see them in action over my town a few times. Last summer, they were taking water from the river not very far from my house and they were approching the river with my house as a reference point. The sound they make when flying overhead at about 400 feet (can't tell you the eyes of my 1-1/2 year son when he saw them)...

 

 

Also, there was a fire near town in 2013, i invite you to go see the following link :

It's great to see them in action, but not so great when you know why.

cool videos!!

 

aircraft firefighting is quite the field!  Watching the L1011 dropping on a live fire a few years ago was quite exciting too.
