Video: aerial firefighting in Europe

Here is a video that I ran across on’s Facebook page. It features CL-215/415s fighting fire from the air. I’m guessing it was shot in Spain or Portugal. The crews on those scoopers seem to enjoy their jobs!

The description on YouTube:

Video del 43 grupo “hecho a mano”. Demuestran lo divertidos que son cuando hace falta.

The description in English, according to Google Translate:

Video of 43 group “handmade”. They show how funny they are when needed.

Don’t be thrown off by the first 55 seconds. It really is about aerial firefighting.
