Firefighting Helicopters

One great modern tool utilized for fighting fires is the helicopter.  Our local airport serves as a helibase in these times.  We took the following photos when the smoke was thicker, and they were unable to fly.  We are sincerely thankful for the efforts of firefighters from all over the country in helping beat back these forest fires!
