Precision flying


No matter how small the fire, everything is thrown at it to avoid escalation. Whatever the cost, it seems a sensible policy. This fire was a few kilometres from us and our closest “helicopter dipping pool” was used. These small reservoirs are located all over the wooded parts of Portugal. Depending on the source, forest coverage is 35-40%.
