BOOOOO CHANNEL 4!!! Stupid choppers! I'm about 90% sure SkyNews9 was in Tulsa most of the day.eharlow said:Man it went very well. Thanks for the compliments. Couldn't have done it without the help of my guys, EFD and OHP. ..............
............... You saw the rest after Chopper 4 showed up. What I found kinda funny after the fact was that SkyNews9 HD never showed it's face. 4 was there the entire time with a ground crew AND the bird.
Guess if I had looked a little closer, or read the post above a little more carefully, I would have caught that. Sucks that you guys have to get rid of it. What kind of tanker are you guys getting?eharlow said:That's actually a 5 ton. It's a little bigger than your "Buster" It's got 2500 gallons on it so it takes a LOT of water to move that thing off the road. Thats why we use it for flood water stuff. Thats about the only type of calls it goes on anymore.
Sadly, this is its last spring storm season. It will go back to Forestry this fall when our brand new tanker comes in. That was part of the agreement to get the grant was to take that vehicle out of service. It will make some department a VERY good truck. That's probably one of the best military trucks I've been around. It runs great and we have really had ZERO problems with it.
