Videos of firefighting aircraft in action

air tanker 137 737 wildfire
This is not a video, but it is a screengrab from the video below of Air Tanker 137, a 737, dropping on the Bruxner Highway Fire (Tenterfield LGA) in New South Wales, Australia. Usually it is not obvious when an air tanker drops simultaneously from more than one tank, but on the 737 the tanks are not adjacent to each other, making it possible to see the separation when the drop begins.

The video below shows Air Tanker 137, a Boeing 737, dropping on the Bruxner Highway Fire (Tenterfield LGA) in New South Wales, Australia.

A Blackhawk and an Air-Crane can be seen in the video below working on a wildfire in New South Wales, Australia.

  1. Got to admit, it’s kinda tough; just for being born as a fire, with all those guys around!
    (Screw’em. That’s what they get for burning on the ground!)
    Sic’em, Boys and Girls. Leave no quarter for the burning!

  2. Can anyone please link me to a video showing an aerial firefighting appliance actually putting out some flames? There’s lots of videos of planes and choppers dropping water but I can’t find any of water dousing a fire. Please email any link you know of to berniemasters@iuinet.net.au . Thanks
