KMAX helicopter supressing fire on Roger's Pass
A heavy lifter helicopter, this machine can carry 700 gallons of water. (+ or - a few) We watched it working on Roger's Pass, wildfire, 2017. This photo is an original photo, not "Photoshopped".
I believe this is a Chinook helicopter, capable of carrying around 2000+ gallons of water. It was at work on the fire at Roger's Pass, 2017. This image is a digital work created from one of my original photos. This year, the fire fighters were able to slow fires down, but not stop them.
