On a warm summer's day while driving in the country, I came across a wildfire burning in the hills. Then I noticed the water bombers attacking the fire. Grabbing my camera I climbed a hill to get some pictures. Their aim was great as they dropped water on the fires and then flew out into the Med. to scoop up more water. I did get wet once and had to abandon my hilltop when I noticed fire on three sides of me.
Lots of water.

Those big engines roared with power.

More water, luckily after he went over my head.

Out in the Med. getting more water.

Coming in low to hit a hot spot.

A high altitude pass to cover a wide area.
