Remarks: A BC Forest Service contracted Wildcat 212 in firefighting configuration landing in Salmon Arm for fuel. Note the FAST FIN modification to the tail cutting out useless metal structure and improving both power and handling!
Remarks: This veteran Bell-212 with U.S. registration was made in 1977 with serial No. 30853 construction, and is being used by the Castilla-Leon in the forest fire season, and its operator Heliduero. Recently participated in the fire that struck the province of León which burned more than 10,000 acres, the skill of the pilot whom I met Angel Garcia and dedicate this picture, was fundamental to their extinction.
