My Cal Fire Turbo Tracker Photos


Turbo Trackers 75 and 80 at Hemet-Ryan Airport on May 14, 2009.

Below are photos taken of Tanker 80 at Hemet-Ryan.  These would be typical of all of the Cal Fire Turbo Trackers.


Stepping up into the aircraft.  There is a cutout in the 1200 gallon fire retardant tank at the bottom of the photo to allow access through the normal S2F passenger door.

The hydraulic tubing and wiring at the rear of the forward passenger area.  The entire aircraft was re-plumbed and rewired as it was converted into an S-2T.


The 1200 gallon retardant tank can be loaded three minutes for quick turnarounds.
