Wildfires and Aviation
Play • 46 min

Wildfires have become more intense over the past few years, and we're getting used to seeing firefighting aircraft in action. But, that's only part of our story. Aircraft are also used to direct ground operations, protect firefighters and provide a birds-eye view of the action. In this episode, we'll meet the pilots and ground crews who give us an inside look at how aircraft help fight wildfires.

In this episode, you'll hear from Joshua Nettles, Tactical Air Operations Division Chief for CAL FIRE, and Josh Mathiesen, Interagency Fire Chief for Six Rivers National Forest and Redwood National Park, U.S. Forest Service.
