Doug Cote with Yukon Wildland Fire Management sent us this photo of Tanker 260, a CL-415. It was taken today, July 16, at Whitehorse International Airport, Yukon Territory (map). (I fixed the date on the photo.)

T-260 has been fighting fires in Alaska for several weeks. We’re thinking it stopped for fuel at Whitehorse on the way home.

The still almost new aircraft fought its first fire in May, 2014 in Oklahoma.

  1. While up at Ft Wainwright, Ak performing scheduled maintenance on our two Air Attack 500S’, I had the pleasure of getting a tour of T260 hosted by the Aero-Flite crew. Great times.
