Posted on the 05 May 2011 by Gerard @presurfer
A massive wildfire at Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas, USA, forced a huge aerial firefighting attack. This video was shot from the news helicopter, showing some of the resources the Forest Service used to fight the blaze. Heavy helicopters, 2 National Guard C-130's, Blackhawks, Single Engine Air Tankers, and type 2 helicopters all contributed to fighting the 200,000 acre fire.
