Here is a brief compilation of four Phoschek fire retardant drops by Tanker 911, a DC-10 used for indirect wildfire suppression. The four consecutive passes/drops were from a single load!
While skimming through some old footage I came across some stuff I shot TEN YEARS AGO while on a tour of Fox Air Tanker Base in Palmdale, CA. Fox is home to the region's air resources for the United States Forest Service. During the tour, presented for area fire photographers, aircraft was dispatched to brush fires started by several lightning strikes in the area. Unfortunately I was shooting on tape and much of the footage from the tour was unusable due to age (it happens!). I managed to piece together enough footage to make this video. Enjoy!
