Erickson S-64E Air Crane

Part 2 of the action from the November 2006 Bush Fires in the upper Blue Mountains. Here you see the Air Cranes taking off from their Airbase at Medlow Airport in the upper Blue Mountains and attack the fire in the upper Grose Valley. The action went all day and the light winds helped suppress the fire but it still burnt for a few more days which ASO will have in part 3.
