A swarm of 4 Conair Fireboss air tankers skim a lake to refill their 3100 l tanks with water to attack the massive wildfires in the area. 6 Fireboss aircraft were in this group skimming lakes near the fires with a Cessna 208 Caravan Birddog aircraft overhead to control their drops.

Thanks Martin. A swarm of 6 Fireboss bombers passing overhead at 50 feet or so every 6 minutes does tend to get the blood pumping! You can see the color effects on the flaps and land from the sun passing through heavy smoke above our position.
