Thank you. Present and accounted for. The fire gave us a BIG show last night, but then laid down for the night. Thank God!

It has still spread to 18K+ acres, but oddly, the smoke situation looks much better - at least for this morning. The weather is supposed to be better today. Fingers crossed.

Part of the problem yesterday was the winds and that freak thunderstorm that no one predicted. Obviously, the winds will drive a fire very quickly, but it also stopped the larger tankers from flying in. It's too dangerous, and they can't fly through thick smoke clouds with jet engines. The particulates get sucked right into those engines and destroy them.

That actually happened with Global Supertanker last week. She flew a little to close to another fire and one engine was damaged. They had to replace the whole engine and she was out of action for three days. That's a lot of missed drop opportunities.

But we do have the prop planes, and 10 Tanker was working furiously yesterday. Non-stop. She has jet engines too, but they decided to keep her flying longer to save some houses. Here's one of her precision drops yesterday. Man, she got right in between that fire line and houses. PERFECT DROP AND AMAZING PILOTS! Please forgive my language, but these guys have balls of steel to fly like that. NO FEAR!

So, it looks like Trabuco Canyon is flaring up again in the last hour. It's all going to depend on the weather today.

One thing I noticed yesterday afternoon is that there are more military fire fighting planes here. Army. Interesting.

No kidding! I've been reading all morning that this arsonist asshole is a violent Q follower trying to destroy liberals.

Facepalm

Yep.   They're looking for anything to pin on Q.  

I'd bet money that this arsonist guy was on the other site.  You know the type - the real whacko ones.  Sovereign citizen, false flags, flat earth, alternative cancer treatments, lizard people - you name the CT, he was into it.  

So yeah, now this fire is Q's fault.

Oh man. Damn it! 10 Tanker (912) had a possible bird strike this morning.

Yet another hazard of flying this low.

First of all, I'm so glad you're okay. Hugs

Next, I had forgotten your knowledge of aircraft. Wow, the vid you linked to was really impressive! Doesn't the extreme heat from the fire affect the air current as well when they're flying? And you are right, those pilots are impressive.

What is contained within that red stuff that they spray?

The sparrows are fleeing the california wildfires and have occupied our bushes, the first birds we have seen besides a couple of crows in two years.

He told us he was going on a road trip for a little while. So we are holding down the fort. He sends postcards to tell us of his adventures.
