    More grief

    A Coulson C-130 tanker plane crashed today over east fighting those terrible fires and sad to say the 3 crew members perished in the crash. Coulson have grounded their tanker pending the investigation, its pretty sad that these men traveled halfway around the world to assist us and sadly paid the ultimate price that puts the death toll for the firies at 7 now R.I.P.

    RIP. Makes one wonder what the cause could be? Fire winds, smoke or dust knocking out engines? The wings came off one in CA years ago IIRC. The C130s carry about half the load of the Martin Mars, but the Mars flies with at least one spotter plane.

    Maybe similar circumstances to the below incident in 2000, although obviously a better outcome for the Air Force Reserve crew and plane.
