This is a Convair, training at Abbotsford Airport for the upcoming fire season. It was so close, I didn't bother with my teleconversion lens. The colors have been enhanced, as the original was very dull and murky.

It's a Conair Convair (580)! Cool shot.

Very Nice!

I watched, from my rooftop, #45 and another Convair plus the Trackers working the Burns Bog fire last September.

Do they train on some kind of schedule? I'd like to drive out there and give my FZ20 a little exercise.

They are heavy into their spring training from now through the end of April. For some real action, I'd give them a couple more weeks to get warmed up, then I'd park yourself on the grass south of the airport (Huntingdon Hwy (a.k.a. 8th ave) after lunch. Only problem is you have to shoot through a wire fence (you can fit your lens through, though).

There will also be DC6's, Firecats, Canadair CL215's, and AC60's.

Very Cool shot



Aircraft are my absolute favorite subject.



Nice job capturing the action.
