2 tankers back enroute from porterville and the big Hercules looks to be over the fire again today. Cameras are showing some heavier smoke near the ridge today.
I heard that yesterday while mobile, couldn’t reply. Tanker activity on the air tactics channel and I heard T132 lift off from Fresno around 0940hrs. So, yes they hit it again.
