This video is a unique angle of a Blackhawk helicopter delivering water
to a fire using a bambi bucket. When the helicopter is in position, the
crew releases the water to extinguish or suppress the fire below. The
shots consist of a take off from the staging field, dips from a nearby
pond to get water and several drops on two different fire locations.
This action takes place in the High Park Fire to try to mitigate spot
fires in the area west of Fort Collins, Colorado.
