      Each base holds their own local training I believe. Getting
      re-familiarized with the local terrain and geography. Although tanker
      01 is not based at Redding, it was doing touch and go's and flight
      training. I believe the pilots were local and the planes were ones
      that were just ready this season. When the pilots are done training
      here, Tanker 01 may go somewhere else to let some more train at
      another base. Every tanker needs to go through maintenance each year
      so there are some that are still in the shop getting the final
      touches done.

      I heard copter 106 and 104 were on base doing a little flying but
      Vina's copter 205 hasn't shown face yet. :( They are due anytime
      now. They do the same thing - fly a little before fireseason possibly
      getting 100 hours of flighttime before the season starts so they are
      ready.
