We certainly do. But these fires are so huge that there just aren't enough water bombers. Dozens are in use but dozens more would be better.

You certainly don't, you use slow small helicopters that are mostly ineffective. It appears to be a political hot potato in the land down under. What was that about Rome burning while Nero fiddled.

Yeah well if you want to direct me to a site where I have to register and log in to read the story then I'm afraid all you've done is showcase the fact that you have done so and are now seeking to 'impress'.

Some of us are savvy enough to not leave 'back-doors' to our computers all over the internet.

So do you have a better source?

BTW, I am well aware of the inadequacies of our water-bombing capabilities. If you were paying attention you would have known that I had made that clear already. I don't need you to tell me I'm wrong, then smugly tell me back what I had already told you.

The Erickson Aircrane 'Elvis'(Helitak 341) will be unable to fight fires for at least three days after it suffered hydraulic problems while working in and round Aberfeldy on Friday.

The State Control Centre has moved sister helicopter Erickson Aircrane 'Gypsy Lady'(Helitack 342) to Essendon Airport ready to replace 'Elvis'.

Mr Lapsley listed the other aircraft involved in the fire to allay concerns about Elvis' grounding. These include one heavy, two medium and two light fire bombers have been joined by three fixed-wing fire bombers, five light air attack supervision-observation helicopters and one fixed-wing firespotter to fight the Gippsland fires.

I can't help it if that cheap ausie rag wants you to register. I was able to read the whole item and it said that the only reason arstralia didn't have fixed wing water bombers was politics.

Helicopters by the way aren't water bombers!
