What's New at 10 Tanker
On Wednesday the 12th of August, 10 Tanker Air Carrier began flying the third DC-10 under a USFS contract. The company has had a fleet of three aircraft for the last year, but August 12th is the first time all have worked concurrently.
Over the last three months two of the company’s aircraft, Tankers 911 and 912, have been working in Washington, Oregon and California under Forest Service contracts. Yesterday Tanker 910 was ordered to Southern Idaho and is based at the Pocatello Air Tanker Base.
On the 12th the three 10 Tanker aircraft combined to drop over 132,000 gallons of retardant on four fires in three states.
The image above is of the flight paths the three tankers took on their fire runs.
