Fire Fighting Frustration
Wildfires are running wild all over America, and all you seem to hear on the news is how sad it is that there aren't enough planes to put out all the fires.
If you had the biggest and best tool for fighting fires at your disposal, would you use it, or would you let less efficient, smaller tools try and do the job?
Evergreen Aviation is fighting this fight right now as their 747 Supertanker sits on a runway in Arizona collecting dust because the government refuses to use their aircraft.
We had Bob Soelberg, the VP and Project Manager of Supertanker Services for Evergreen Aviation, on the show today, and he talked about where they stand with the government, and what their tanker could be doing right now to help put out these wildfires.
