DC10 Drops Flame Retardant
Occurred on December 21, 2019 / Hill Top, New South Wales, Australia
Info from Licensor: "I had 2 fire fronts about 200m away my family had been evacuated but I stayed to battle the ember attacks. The fire had eased so I had a drink break and heard a plane it sounded like it was low so I went out to video it for my 2-year-old who loves planes. I saw the first plane coming but I had no idea a jumbo was about to drop the retardant. I heard the roar of the jet, it was awesome. Later the fire flared up again and burnt up to the retardant lines if it wasn’t for the skillful drop outside my fence line we may of lost our home, they really did save the day."
