Default Widlfire pilots - new schemes

Not to diminish our military pilots, but may need to work in a few schemes to honor these guys... the old statement 'balls as big as church bells' comes to mind as they push through these drops...

I've been wanting to do a water bomber for a while; either a DC-10 or Martin Mars. They're just way cool. Just have too many other projects to finish first.

They've dragged a few 747's out of retirement to fight this tragedy . Some jackass arsonist set one of them .
All the best to the affected people of California .

These Pilots are Studs , We hear about the wildfires, the loss of property and life, and tend to forget all the work and courage these guys put in to try and contain and eliminate these fires., Nothing but much RESPECT for all of the pilots, and firefighters from Me for sure,,,,
