...as in working with the hotshot crews that have been battling forest fires around here. This particular aircraft was flown in from Ontario, along with a second. They scoop water up by skimming a lake or reservoir surface...something I'd think would take some big cajones.

My son and I spotted them on the tarmac while driving past the airport. We stopped to take a pic (not the greatest because it was done on an iPhone through a fence from a distance):

Reaction time is a factor...

Big cajones!!!
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
