Excellent capture. This shot really tells the story of what these powerful machines do on a daily basis.

Awesome from this angle....a bit less when you are under the point of impact of the retardant liquid! S-64E saved my home during a forest fire.

Great shot, Alfredo! You captured the very right moment with the best angle. In addition, the colour of the fire retardant gives all its strength to this picture. See you soon. Eric

Simply wonderfull. I can even preview your image being used soon on enviromental campaigns. Too bad such a beautifull capture were only possible due of a sad and dramatic forest moment.

I remember this day. We had three fires in the area. You were standing on a bend in the road taking this shot.Enrico and I were flying from Albenga and we spent about 1 1/2 hr.s here. Great photo!

I like how you've also captured 3 colors of the Italian flag in this shot. Perhaps unintentionally but very cool.

Ohhh nice!!! I was lucky enough to see this Crane parked at CZBB, I was impressed back then but it is way better to see it in action. Wonderful Picture.

I believe there was about 10000 litres of retardant.
