FIRE IN SPAIN

Post by Daniel GIB » Fri Jul 29, 2011 10:12 pm

On the 7th July there was a large forest fire a few kms from Gibraltar near the Alcaidesa in Spain. To put out the flames, various aircraft were used, these ranged from water bombers to helicopters. The water bombers, two Canadair CL215Ts, would refill their bellys in the waters of the Bay of Gibraltar whilst the helicopters (Kamov type helos) from the Med Sea.

Here are some pics I took from Gibraltar...
