The last time I saw Kari Greer was last year at the 20-year commemoration of the South Canyon Fire in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. We talked for a while, and after comparing camera gear I asked if her camera equipment and her vehicle smell like a forest fire for a while after returning from a fire. She smiled and said that yes, she loved it, and thought that other people who ride in her vehicle like it too.

You gotta appreciate a wildland fire photographer who loves the smell of smoke!

    1. Steve, that might be an A-10, I am not sure- that series of shots is from the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs and that portable dip site was very near the Air Force Academy. I caught it in the background. The plane is static, a mounted display at the Academy- to answer the thread below.

  1. Why, yes it is

    Was there a TFR in place? Was there an ATGS in the area?

    If not…oohh nooo “See and Avoid” comes to mind……

    1. Not sure what you guys saw in the video. An A-10 Wart Hog? I did not see it. If I missed some thing critical please enlighten me. It was a good video. It gives the public a good perspective of what wildland FFs do.

  2. In the couple of pics with the A-10 in the background, it doesn’t move compared to the horizon. Maybe the sky crane was conducting ops near an ANG base, with a static display A-10 mounted… Just my thoughts.

  3. It’s been my experience that TFR’s don’t really mean much to military aviation. In Alaska there are rouge military aircraft all over. I have also been on a helibase in Montana where a random black-hawk came and did a touch-and-go and we had no comms or warning. See and avoid anytime your near a military operations area and even when you’re not… surprise.
