Fighting a big fire is more than just putting out the flames, but many people forget (or not even think) about it.

Tanker 102 left Tuesday for Australia. One of the RAAF C-17s carried spare parts down for the aircraft heading down. They were delayed due to the volcano in the Philippines. Tanker 102 is n MD-87, so is having to hop down. It's going through Alaska, Russia, Japan, and Guam. They are set to arrive Friday morning. He's in Narita today.

Tanker 912 and 914 were in Mobile undergoing C- Checks. They completed 912, but it needed a check flight in VFR conditions, and there was fog in Mobile that delayed that a couple days. They departed California today for Honolulu for fuel, then down to Australia. Tanker 914, and 103, another MD-87 depart next week.

A few years back, SE Washington state had a huge wild fire, one among many that summer all over the bloody place...

Among the fire fighters from all over the world were fire fighters/smoke jumpers from the OZ. Several of them were camped out in my yard for most of the summer. Nice guys doing a very dangerous job.

They helped a lot, and it wasn't forgotten. The businesses around town thanked them with free food and drink for the entirety of their stay.

We might have got through it without 'em, but it would have been much harder.

Thanks to everyone on ATS for their thoughts.

This is a report from Kangaroo Island. Really shows you how things are over there right now.

Tanker 912 is stuck in Honolulu. Their next leg was from Honolulu to Pago Pago, but Tropical Cyclone Tino is hanging around the area. There's not really a good second option for a fuel stop so they can't leave until the storm moves. Tanker 103 arrived yesterday.
