CDF air activity
- Today I saw a large tanker, 4 engines, taking off from the Chico air
base and a few hours later I heard Tanker 14 (a DC-4) asking for an FM
radio check on the Guard (presumably 168.6250). I couldn't hear the
other end of 'the guard' conversation, and the tanker I saw might not
have been 14.
Later in the day Copter 205 was up working an incident in the Butte
unit, I would guess it was a fire because they got an incident number
from BTU ECC but SAR was not invovled, ruling out a technical rescue.
The air resources are starting to get warmed up... here comes the season.
