Having just seen one of the videos all I can say is RIP lads. Putting out fires, helping, doing a great job. Then next second yes all shite come real. I am certainly no accident investigator, actually have no idea about the real circumstances, but it does appear to me that they just well...... hit the ground.

A risky job yes, limits defined no doubt but fires are brutal beasts not just on the ground. The turbulence, the vis. No doubt hey were following their out after the drop and something just didn’t go right.

There but for the grace of god and thank you, you have paid the ultimate price for doing a very risky job.
