I used to fly tanker 23 for Aero well as Tanker 21
That photo was one of the last of #23 flying before the company's contract was cancelled by the Forest Svc

Richard, I've got about seven or eight more snaps (all great) of 23 at this fire. Got them right here on my computer. Also a short vid as it made a drop at this fire.
I believe I also have it sitting on the ramp at McClellan with about five others, all just parked and deserted at the closed AU facility.
If you are interested in having any of the pics or that lone (short) vid, my email is ...

And to both you and Dan, I'm glad you both liked this photo. Thank You for the comments. :-)
