Planes at Fire Base

Post by JagXKR »

Looks like the yearly staffing of the air base is underway but no more Electra. Instead there are 4 AT802's and 1 Cessna C208 Caravan. I guess they have been tasked to Penticton and the Electra has gone elsewhere. These are slightly different than the ones used last year in Westbank as they are fixed gear not amphibious. The latter scooped water from lakes where these drop retardant. Since they don't carry anywhere near as much as an Electra I guess the airport will have many more takeoffs and landings .
And these are from Conair and last year the Electra and AC90 Aero Commander were from Air Spray.

Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.
