Re: Australian Bushfires update (O/T)

Living in Sydney it's been rather apparent that the fires just haven't stopped. Lots of days of rather poor air quality and least the news here has kept it as one of their main features daily.

And indeed, Zeuz (Tanker 134) that sadly crashed the other day along with Thor (Tanker 132) has been here since early on in the season.
Out of the extra 4 tankers that have been hired in I think only 2 has made it to Australia as yet, both MD-87's that arrived in Perth and Adelaide. There's 2 more DC-10's on the way but last I heard they were delayed. Most of the big tankers in NSW are based right around the corner from me and can see them fly past almost daily.

One from the backyard a few years ago. This would be Thor (Tanker 132)
