As the horrible fires finally start dying down Australia is now releasing resources from their contract.
First to head home is 10 Tanker Air Carrier. Tanker 911 will be the first of the three DC-10s to head home!
Today we farwell our DC-10 as it makes the journey back to their home base in the US. The Very Large Air Tanker (VLAT) undertook 221 missions and dropped more than 8 million litres of extinguishing agents since commencing in mid November 2019.
A massive thank you to the crews of 10 Tanker Air Carrier for their ongoing support this season, and safe travels back home.
