Air Tanker Down

Recommended Posts

I am sorry if this was taken offensively. It was not intended that way.


What I was getting at that it was instantaneous passing. With the amount of time that it took to get Search and Rescue into the actual site (over 1 day), it would have been worse if the 2 gents were alive and requiring medical attention...


Once again, sorry if I have offended anyone....

I totally understood your original comment and appreciated your sentiment. I am sure that when you are working on a fire line it is natural to look for some type of small blessing when a tragedy occurs. I think some blog readers are predisposed to make critical comments. Thanks for your on the ground perspective.

Thoughts and prayers to Tim's and Brian's family and friends.


Ironically, I saw the CBC piece on water-bombing with Tim days before the crash. It takes talent and courage to fly the bombers as close as possible to support the fire attack crews below.


I have the greatest of respect and admiration for these pilots!
