Friday was a training day at Rangiora with the Department of Conservation High Country Fire Team.
The basic set up with water being pumped from holding tanks into the bucket of the aircraft loader above.
And then loading it into the aircraft below.
In this case we have the locally based PAC Cresco ZK-LTB of Ravensdown Aerowork Ltd.
Below is the DOC ground unit.
And the Aerowork loader below.
Now two short video clips.
Alas the take off gets fuzzy towards the end.
