FIREFIGHTING AIRCRAFT STILL SITS IDLE
The same story every year! DNR, AMD, USFS all willing to let houses, animals and property burn for their own political benefit. THE PBY IS STILL SITTING WHILE EVERYTHING BURNS DUE TO INCOMPETENCE!! This aircraft saved many homes and thousands of acres over a 20+ year history with the State. This aircraft is maintained on a current FAA maintenance program. It is safe, legal and reliable! It flew for 20+ years for the State of Washington without incident. The DNR and the administrators need to be held accountable for their actions and their willingness to let others suffer to protect their programs. This is truly gross negligence. Does anyone care??
