Aerial Firefighting New Years Day 2021


Recommended Posts

Bushfire just up the road from us today, no direct threat to us but a grandstand view of the water bombers at work, they get down very low among the trees and power lines.  I salute the skill and courage of the pilots.

happy valley fire nice way to start our year off.

25 years here and that’s only our second fire.  CFS got on to it very quickly and stopped it from spreading too far.  Hopefully they were able to save the stand of Grey Box.
