Remarks: Very surprising to see that this may be the first shot from Rogers field in the DB. Tanker 27 taxiing to Chesters' single runway, 16 after taking on a load of retardant while fighting the "McDonald" fire to the Northeast of Susanville,CA.
Remarks: "Tanker 27" departing runway 26 at Stead with a slow climb due to being full of retardant to go fight the "Peterson" fire just as the sun is just about done with it's job for the day. Pylon #3 can also be seen in the background which is used for the Reno Air Races each September. 1280px
