When these guys (and gals) need to get to a wildfire, they'll go to extraordinary lengths...












Not terribly artistic photography, but not something you see everyday, so I thought I'd share.

Exactly... Fun for crazy people. I'd do it, but someone's gotta fly the helicopter .

Just one suggestion, slower shutter speed next time. I know it'll be hard to get the guy as he is moving, but having the rotors really frozen like that looks very unrealistic.

Awesome pics though!

Thanks for posting Josh. Brings back some memories from the 60's.

I absolutely agree, that was my first thought when I looked at 'em, but it was too late, and they were done with their training. Next time...
