Flying another run above the burning warehouse of the CIOS recycling facility in Zagreb. Having started at around 13:30, the blaze had quickly spread out of control of the ground teams, necessitating the assistance of the air force - marking the first time that aerial firefighting units had been used within the city perimeter. Scrambled from LDZL at 16:00, 229 - equipped with the FLORY 2600 bambi bucket - had managed to make drop every four to five minutes, scooping up water at a nearby artificial lake.
