In 2008, we had some very severe wildfires going all around our county! We got this giant tanker from a company in Canada. It used to be a "flying boat" and was converted to fire suppression. It fills up with lake water and dumps on the fire area. This is Lake Shasta, at it's lowest level in 25 years.

Very impressive shot Doug.
We too get the wildfires here in southern Spain, we get both planes and also helicopters with their buckets filling up with water from our nearby lakes and river, without their help we would all be in great danger here!
