"Super Scooper" Firefighter Planes Fight the Walker Fire

The Walker Fire, which is California’s largest wildfire this year, had burned 47,340 acres and was 20% contained as of Tuesday evening, according to the U.S. Forest Service. At least 1,096 fire officials from an assortment of agencies have been assigned to the firefighting efforts. "Super Scooper" planes from Spokane, WA. landed, multiple times per hour, on Lake Davis scooping up water and dumping up to 1600 gallons a drop on the fire. "Super Scooper" is a nickname given to certain amphibious firefighting aircraft built by Canadair. Thank you to everyone involved fighting this fire and protecting our communities.
