    I know this is a very old video but the title is totally false and it's at least 10% not even helis but some silly shots of an idiot hanging off of a wall over the spillway*? or something. Probably a stolen video anyway.

    First of all LAFD doesn't own Skycranes. That's Erikson Helicopters out of Oregon on USFS call when needed contract for forest fire resource order to assist LAFD

    Second as a retired wildland firefighter it was a pleasure to work with these big birds on the fires I was assigned to across our beautiful country.
    Third for 2018 guys and gals be safe we don't need to lose anyone over an acre of forest or grassland. Remember the grass and trees grow back we don't.

    If it had a bucket installed in the helicopter of these, besides being safer, it would be faster supply and consequently the fire fight, very poor design, with pumps bringing more weight to the aircraft and less effectiveness.
