It hasn't been posted on Youtube, but here is a great video of the DC-10 VLAT dropping on the Carpenter One fire on Mt. Charleston. Guy with the video camera gets painted pretty good...our whole crew got painted by a PB4Y back on 01 near Reno...that stuff sucks to get off your skin and it hurts. lol.

Those DC-10 fire retardant bombers are now based at my home field, KCPR (Casper, WY). No other reason than the long (10,100 feet) main runway, 3-21. During W.W. II it was a training base for B17 and B24 aircrews. It also was a base where Chuck Yeager received his advanced training in the P51 Mustang.

Last evening I spent an hour of training on chandelles, lazy eights, and steep spiral descents in anticipation of an upcoming Commercial Pilot checkride. Nothing quite like steep bank turns, too. A 55 degree angle of bank is the current standard, and pulling close to 2 g's in the turns.
