Another firefighting tanker has crashed. Near redlands, California, the tanker, T-99, was from Minden Air based at Tucson, Arizona just south of Davis-Monthan AFBs south gate. Used to see it parked there all the time in off season.

RIP

Mike do you want to fly the fire fighting aircraft when you leave the AF?

Wouldn't be a bad job. I already do wildland firefighting from the ground.

Know a number of guys in the business.

What's a P-2, I've heard of it but I can't picture it. Is it one of those converted B-24's?
