No wildfires of Note

Post by JagXKR »

Nice to see we have no "Widfires of Note" in the Kamloops Fire Center. Consequently I noticed the Lockheed Electra (L188) and the "birdog" Aero Commander (AC90) that are usually based here have been gone for the last 2 (or more) days. They were replaced today with 4 Air Tractors (At8T) and a Cessna Caravan (C208). These AT8T's should not be confused with the Air Boss because these are straight wheeled aircraft not amphibious like the ones that worked Smith Ck. These need to return to the fire base and reload with retardant as they don't drop water. I'm just guessing here but I would think that the L188 went up to one of the big fires to help out.

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