Previously we mentioned¬†HERE, the international firefighting support that assisted the State of Israel with the deadly wildfires. At the time, the Evergreen 747 Super Tanker was en-route to provide assistance. We missed a blog entry showing this massive aircraft in action, flying low over buildings to drop up to 21,000 gallons of retardant. Check HERE to see images of this incredible tool at work and read about it’s use on this fire.
