For Throw Back Thursday, let’s take another look at a classic film produced by National Geographic, Fire Bombers 1998. It includes some excellent footage of air tankers in that era, and also has interviews with a number of pilots. Bill Waldman probably gets the most screen time — he’s a good storyteller and seems comfortable in front of the camera.
We did our own interview, sort of, with Mr. Waldman, in 2013 in which we asked him 12 questions.
Below is the National Geographic film.
