Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Firefighting Lago di Santa Croce 25-10-2018

Post by tonno1970 »

HI guys, would like to share some images I took yesterday during real firefightings operations against one of the biggest fire of last 30 years in north east of Italy.
Hopefully tonight will start to rain.

Involved were 5 Canadair and some different helicopters.

With some friends decided to go to the lake of Santa Croce for the water refuelling operations. Weather was challenging and we tried many different position along the day.

Here some pics hope you'll enjoy them. If you want can have a look to the entire album on my flickr page:
