Power line fire

A Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System-equipped C-130 assigned to the Air Force Reserve Command’s 302nd Airlift Wing approaches the Power Line fire near Pocatello, Idaho, Aug. 10, 2016. In early August the Reserve wing received a request for assistance, for one MAFFS-equipped C-130 and crew, from the National Interagency Fire Center. They spent a month flying out of Boise, Idaho, in support of wildland firefighting suppression efforts in the Western U.S. Together with a MAFFS-equipped C-130 from the 153rd AW, Wyoming Air National Guard, they made 165 drops, releasing more than 395,000 gallons of retardant.
