The Rim Fire From Above

In Fire, News

If you haven’t been watching these videos on Youtube you’ve missed some very interesting views only a few people see of the Rim Fire. Check out this video from one of the MAFFS C-130J that have been helping to fight the fire in Yosemite and the Stanislaus National Forest by dropping fire retardant. The view is out the front window of the plane and the little gray nub at the bottom is the nose of the plane. The windows are square but appear curved due to lens aberration. If you listen close you’ll hear the pilots commenting on how even they think this is a really impressive fire and they’ve seen a lot of wild fires.
