I shall sound like a spoil sport here.....when you show up with your suitcases and dogs.....it is a more a transport than a rescue.

Smoke does not qualify as Cloud....but nipping along in the edge of the smoke columns when there was a clear air route to the landing spot makes me wonder about all those other aircraft zipping about.

Overall....a good effort....but Hero Badges....errr.....perhaps not.

When you melt your chin bubbles due to the heat....that is a close call.

Gordy is pretty low key....but he and another Pilot in a second machine pulled off a real rescue a while back.

Perhaps he might relate his account of that event....where some fire fighters were in risk of being over run by a fast moving fire.
