    BillCola and I went out today to check on the progress of the fire fighters working on the Stevens Fire. Bill put us right on the location where one of the Helicopters was dipping water out of the river.

    This one has the chopper, the bridge we were watching from, and the burned area inthe background. This is very steep country.

    We moved around to the river bank for a better perspective.

    Yeah, we were pretty close..... and he was pretty low.

    When Bill shot this picture he said "there's the money shot".

    If you think it might have been comfortable flying, check out the dust devil up there in the burn.

    Kudos to Bill for finding the spot and taking the photos. I was just along for the ride. :)

    Davis,

    I think Bill emailed a couple photos to the outfit that owns the Huey (N Number Look-Up is great). I imagine they'll filter down to the pilot some day when he's not quite so busy.
