On March 30 we wrote about the Colombian Air Force acquiring a Modular Airborne FireFighting System (MAFFS). Installed in a C-130H this will be the first time they have had access to a fixed wing firefighting aircraft.
Some of the photos below were taken by Bill Gabbert at the March 29 ceremony where the government officially accepted the MAFFS unit. Others were taken by professional photographer John Daniel Russell over the previous one to two weeks. (John’s web site is not active now, but is expected to debut later.)
