  1. I really wish we (as in me) could fly UAS over fires. Obviously common sense would need to be employed, but how great would videos like these be for S-190 students? I can’t think of any fire behavior, with the exception of a fire whirl, that wasn’t shown. With the right pilot at the controls, who understans the environment they are operating in, I think this would be a fantastic tool for gathering S.A., for training, for post-burn rehab, etc. I think it’s coming, just a long ways off.

  2. Cool video, however……… if Ireland uses aerial firefighting assets the drone operator needs to understand how dangerous his/her operation represents.
