Water Bombing Planes picking up water for bushfires
2

Here's some videos that I thought people may find interesting that I took the last couple of days of two water bomber planes collecting water from Lake Conjola for the bushfire fighting effort West of Milton in New South Wales, Australia which is burning out of control. The planes have been picking up water for three continuous days now.

Great effort and skill from the pilots skimming along the water and filling up their pontoon tanks full of water without stopping and doing a terrific job in fighting these bushfires by water bombing. From picking up the water, flying to the fire, bombing and returning for the next water pickup is around 10 minutes.

Here are three of the videos taken with a Nikon D850 and 200-500mm lens -
