Hi Folks!

They are bringing in C-130s (didn't say whether Reserve Guard or Active) set up to drop retardent


Per a news article over at defenselink dot mil, six have been deployed.
Four are from the Montana and North Carolina Air National Guard and the other two are from the Air Force Reserve out of Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado.

For more details on what the DOD is doing to support Southern Cal. check out:

While looking at the Mars videos I found this one on the 747 tanker. Yea it's a marketing blurb from Evergreen, but it is interesting

A little bit late, but an interesting look into the Evergreen 747 'SuperTanker.' Looks like it came from Evergreen, the designers.
