Let The Hydromulching Begin

There will probably be hundreds if not thousands of photos soon online of these little planes hydromulching our mountains. I was out for a bike ride along Mountain Drive when I noticed these planes buzzing overhead this afternoon. I decided to head up into Mission Canyon to take a look. I found a great spot to watch somewhere below the Tunnel-Rattlesnake Connector Trail on the top of a little hill. The planes dove below my vantage point then pulled up in front of the hill I was watching from. I watched one plane make as many as ten passes without dropping any mulch, just making some tight aerobatic turns. These guys must really love their job. Dave
