Right now, there are huge forest fires in Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and other Western states. So, where is the largest firefighting plane, owned by an American country, fighting fires? .Not out West.
Right now, we have a very old air tanker fire fighting airplanes and there very few of those planes left.
So, why are we allowing an American company, with the largest firefighting airplane (a 747) to fight fires to sit idle?
Just plain stupidity by the Obama administration.
