In addition to the Canadian air tankers being assigned to Alaska (seven recently that we know of) there are three air tankers under contract with the U.S. Forest Service in the state, according to information we received from today from Jennifer Jones, a spokesperson for the agency:
- T-160 Aero-Flite RJ85
- T-10 Neptune BAe-146
- T-101 Aero Air MD87
Thanks and a tip of the hat go out to Mike and John.
