DC10 Firefighters out of KMHR


#1

Hoping they would be unblocked but they are indeed blocked.


#2

They may not be blocked, just not requesting radar services.


#3

More than likely… I thought it was not only weird but unusual as I was washing my car to see a DC10 departing with a left turnout from 4R, when the 22s were in use!

BL.


#4

That’s what you get for washing your car.
Firefighting aircraft get very good treatment from ATC, similar to air ambulance flights.


#5

There was one along with MAFFS 5 & MAFFS 6 at KMCC in the early evening. I was listening to TRACON and KMCC approach on liveatc.


#6

You can find some older flights from DC10 Tankers
