Yeah, nah. its not those guys, although that looks pretty cool.

Having been involved in most of the biggest fires that we have had in NZ over the last couple of decades, i would think you probably wouldn't have flown a Puma enough to even pay the pilots. We just don't get big fires in NZ like they do in Oz, USA, Canada, our biggest in area went out to about 3000ha, or about 6600 acres burnt....

Just heard that they will be logging.

it’s an old std 330/332 problem/feature.
I once spent a couple of weeks in Darwin, on daily contract pay, touring around the Northern Territory in a company car with a Shell carnet. I was waiting for a UK registered 332 to be transported by Antonov from Aberdeen, reassembled and airtested by me with a British licence. They had fitted sponson tanks to it and the delay was because they could not get them to work.

Then there was no Antonov any more so I got totally bored and departed for more refreshing places.

You’re welcome.

When SA/AS/AH do sponsons and fuel systems they definitely give the job to the Gotcha department.

They reached their pinnacle with the EC225. Leave the pressure refueling panel in the refueling position and there is no transfer of fuel in flight. There are a couple of embarrassed pedestrians that can tell this story.
