CFA Water bomb

The CFA took to the skies for an Aviation Day in Lilydale, showcasing a number of CFA aircraft-related procedures.

During the event water bombing aircraft was loaded, set up and took off to perform a real water drop, as well as an assessment of Air Observers and Air Attack Supervisors.

The aircraft was loaded around 9.30am before aircraft operations took place at a Lilydale property around 12pm, giving onlookers an insight into all aspects of CFA aviation.

The planned aircraft activity was only a drill and not related to a real fire incident.
