We’re catching up on email and want to post some photos and videos we have received from our readers.
These videos were shot by Fred Johnsen. The first one shows Bombardier water-scooping air tankers that were working on the Pioneer Fire in central Idaho refilling their tanks at Deadwood Reservoir about 60 air miles northeast of Boise. It also shows helicopters returning to the helibase at Cascade, Idaho at the end of the day.
In the next video we see a Bombardier air tanker landing at Boise.
