Saturday afternoon another air tanker joined the fleet in Chile helping the firefighters deal with heavy wildfire activity that began several weeks ago. Neptune Aviation’s Tanker 03 (N475NA) arrived after a multi-day flight from Missoula, Montana.

It will be based in Concepción.

  1. Did they bring a load of long term retardant with them from Missoula? (gear door-belly)
    If so another new record!

      1. Many thanks for your prompt reply Michelle, good to know of its arrival location, and eventual operating base.
