One thought on “Demonstration water drop by LA County “Firehawk””

  1. This tank arrangement on the Blackhawk (Lima Models) has been a great asset to rotary wing operations Successful used by the military guard units, manufactured by Aero Union. The Aero Union version has a retractable hose and pump which reels to storage after each water pickup. There was four of these external tanks (1020 gal cap) manufactured for the guard nationwide. So what happened to them and why is this investment gathering dust in a warehouse (probably). .
