One photo Aug 2, 215 pm dusk by my son who drove to one of the fire lines
My son says:Tanker 910, a DC 10 converted to fire fighting duty. She holds as much fire retardant as 12 of the normal, smaller bombers. She was circling right overheard so I got some good close pictures. Photo by my son
photo of the Rocky Fire Aug 2, 2015 by my son
One of the little spotter planes that helps direct the bombers to target, and generally follow the spread of the wild fires. Photo by my son
A great shot of tanker 910 (or possibly one of her two sister planes, but I believe it is 910) flying almost directly overhead. The large bulge under the fuselage hold the massive tanks to drop the fire retardant on the fires.
Photos taken by my son two locations, one east side of Clearlake, the other off of the end of 20th Ave, Clearlake.
