Firefighters CL-415 in action - Bulgaria, 2008

Postby hornise on Wed 16 Feb 2011, 1:23 pm

Back in 2008 - in the begining of September serious forest fires broke out and the Bulgarian state is unable to cope with the problem without outside intervention. France and Spain have sent CL-415 planes to help and to put the situation under control.

Fantastic set. One of the best posts for a while. :clap:

Stunning sunset shots and 6 & 9 with both aircraft are superb. :drool:

What an amazing set Anton. Really love the sunset shot with the two aircraft in it but the rest are lovely as well. Hope you don't turn into a pyromaniac though if it gives these kind of opportunities!
