[Closed] Plane & Pilot's 2 Year Anniversary: Camp Fire Air Drop @ KSUU - 091800ZDEC18

Hello everyone!

Just about 2 years ago, on December 11th 2016, Plane & Pilot hosted our first event ever. 2 years later, we are stronger than ever with a dedicated staff team, a flying club, an ATC division, a good standing on the community, and so much more. 2018 has been our most productive year yet, and we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings! To celebrate this huge milestone, we will be recreating our second event ever! A few weeks ago the dreaded Camp Fire burned Paradise, a small town in California, to the ground. This weekend we will be going back in time to use C130 and drop supplies and smoke jumpers over the doomed town. We will start in Travis Airforce Base in northern California and fly up to L24 (Paradise Airport) where we will open our cargo bays and drop supplies before flying back to the base. We hope you can join us! Everyone Grade 2+ is welcome! Just post below and we will add you to the list.

Can I escort with A10 if update comes out soon enough

1 Like

Yes, you can, just keep a safe distance from other aircraft:-)

If the A10 doesn’t come out, would you like a C130 gate?

Just 4 more days until this exciting event takes off! Make sure to reserve a gate!

for a camp fire trip like this, is it possible to fly an international fire retardant dc-10?
