Conair Fireboss air tankers skim lakes to refill their 3100 L tanks with water so they can attack wildfires. 6 Fireboss aircraft were in this group with a Cessna 208 Caravan Birddog aircraft overhead to control their drops. Quite an airshow. The ripping sound these swarms of planes make as they skim the lake surface at the same time is amazing! This aircraft descends out of the smoke for a refill.

Thanks Sebastian. I had to learn how to edit these shots. So much ash and dust in the sky that they kept killing off all my Air Tractor shots in screening. Now I got it figured mostly :-)
