Aerial Firefighting
A UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter assigned to Joint Task Force-Bravo's 1-228th Aviation Regiment carries a Bambi bucket en route to an aerial firefighting mission in Honduras. The 1-228th utilized the Bambi buckets to battle a fire that was threatening villages near Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras on the evening of March 4, 2014. Two Blackhawks flew under night vision goggles and dropped more than 10,000 gallons of water over a four-hour span to extinguish the blaze. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Zach Anderson)
