This is one of four CL215 Canadian Water Bomber aircrafts that helped to save our cabin and many other homes on May 25, 2014 from the recent Funny River Fire. Every 3.8 minutes for over 4 hours, each of these amazing planes dumped 1200 gallons of water to help suppress the advance of the fire. This crew came from Alberta and Alaska relies heavily on them and their team of other aircrafts every fire season. We are so grateful to them!
