With IFATC still all over the West of the USA today, IFC Community users organized a chance to fight the fires ravaging California and Colorado. Today I took to the skies in the 10 Tanker Air Carrier to help fight the fire located at Pine Gulch just outside of Grand Junction, CO. A huge thank you to @Raze. What an excellent event idea. One last thank you to all non-structure fireman who battle the infernos all over Colorado and California at this very moment. Only the Brave.
