"why is it that every video of aircraft on fire video that shows the emergency vehicles and fire trucks arriving to the scene they take forever to find the right spot for the nozzle to spray on the actual fire as opposed to right in front of the truck as if its pissing?"

Firefighting foam is a mixture of water and additives. Improperly mixed foam could possibly accentuate the fire rather than extinguish it. Therefore you will see foam produced and projected away from the fire until the operator is satisfied that the foam is of sufficient quality for application.

It is also the case that foam can be applied during certain firefighting phases for the protection of the occupants and structure of the fuselage. As such it may look as though the control of the foam application is not 'on target'

Two more twin otters, so far 3 for the show for Viking.Also interesting that it will get tip tanks and be the first that I know of to come from the factory with 4 blade props. Will be interesting to see if we see more of these 'custom' builds going forward.

I know most people didn't expect any big orders at the airshow, but I still didn't think Viking would make this amount of news. More good news!

Can't say I was expecting a Twotter order at Singapore. Glad to see another home for a Viking 400, don't know how close they are to running through their white tails.

There were also a couple of articles about Australia's Royal Flying Doctor Service ordering two, although one seems to have gone and the other seems to have been edited to not include that detail, and there's nothing on Vikingair's website about it:

I wonder what happened? Perhaps the reports got a bit ahead of the reality?

Didn't Airbus receive an order for 10 A350-900s from Sichuan Airlines?
