I think this will be the first operational drop for T-137 in California. It made its first operational drop in the USA earlier this week I believe.

Interesting country. We got chased out on the Fish Fire in 2001? from the erratic winds.

Does Ravendale still have any workable helipads?

I was on the crew in 2000. I was wondering if the pads got redone? They were in pretty bad shape back then.
