747 Jumbo Jet Fights Station Fire
We were listening to the Station Fire press conference on the radio and they were asked about the 747 coming to help fight the Station Fire, officials said they weren't sure if they would call it in. 15 minutes later we saw the 747 coming in to drop fire retardant on a hotspot in the Acton area. It made 3 separate drops on the area. A DC-10 (bottom photo)super tanker also dropped in the same area of Acton today.
