Close up of the impressive prop on this Fire Boss on display at the 2016 California Capital Airshow. Powering the Fire Boss is the trusty Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67F turboprop engine putting out 1600 HP.  Equipped with floats, this aircraft can scoop 800 gallons of water from any body of water in 12-15 seconds and be off the water and on its way again to the front lines in as few as 20-30 seconds.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm.
