Interview with Wayne Coulson: gel vs. retardant, and their plans for more C-130 air tankers

This is a video interview with Wayne Coulson, CEO of the Coulson Group. The company operates two C-130 firefighting air tankers. Mr. Coulson talked about the use of gel for direct attack on fires, and how in some cases the local fire managers in Australia prefer that rather than indirect attack with long term fire retardant. He also discussed their plans for the company to add more aircraft to their fleet.

  1. im not in the industry,but it really excites me that all this news is so positive for protecting the public and our forests.though im one of those guys who says let the structures burn and just focus on stopping the fire.i live in an urban/wildland interface,if i lost my home due to not protecting it myself BEFORE the fire starts.oh well time to move on.it just makes me feel better to know that as a whole,the fire fighting capabilities are improving so much,from the air anyway.
