The Fire King refilling its water tanks during fire bombing operations south of Perth. The smoke from the blaze which was just over a kilometer away is in the background. The water drops and the entire circuit could be seen from the park. A little later 2 Air Tractor waterbombers did a dump just behind the houses in the background. The crews were superb in their abilities.
