DC-10 Supertanker, Tanker 910 Over Slide Fire

Great video of Tanker 910 making a drop over the Slide Fire on October 22.

The converted DC-10 Supertanker is making a drop on the right flank of the fire near the head. Unfortunately the 40 mph winds dispersed the retardant over a too wide area but the point has been made again that this weapon is worth its weight.

I’m betting the Forest Service people who killed the 747 Supertanker earlier this year feel kinda stupid right now.

We should have a minimum of 10 of these giants at the ready, year round.
