This air tanker passed overhead at about 300 ft. or less.
I could smell the hot oil when this one passed overhead. Nearly every fire season, we lose one or more of these planes and their flight crews to accidents. It's a dangerous job that gets much more so as they get closer to the ground. It's kind of like crop dusting with DC-6 but way more dangerous!
