Firefighting

Airmen prepare several C-130 Hercules for wildfire fighting operations across Texas April 18, 2011, at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas. These C-130s are equipped with Modular Airborne Firefighting Systems, which are capable of dispensing 3,000 gallons of water or fire retardant in less than 5 seconds. The wildfires have spread across parts of Texas and have burned more than 1,000 square miles of land. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Robert Wollenberg)
