Drop It like it's Hot
Whew! You really can't get any lower than this.. Insane image caught on camera. This Electra Air tanker doing a low level drop, for some Fire Behavior Scientists recently.. We are continually testing these drops, as these are extremely dangerous for the pilots and the crews on the ground!!
