    Default 2006 Esperanza Fire P2V Neptune airtanker about to drop

    I discovered this in the wee hours this morning, 10/28/2012. Anybody seen this one before?

    Hours after the Santa Ana-driven 2006 Esperanza Fire burnover that killed 5 firefighters unfortunately defending a non-defensible property, a P2V retardant bomber appears to be about to drop on a significant hot spot along a dozer line just east of Poppet Flats. As best as I can figure, the pink patch is large flames.... the target.... a spot fire from the main burn farther east.

    Nothing shows up for me at those coordinates.


    Edit: Found it using Historical Imagery - 2006.

    Awesome find!!

    Here, I made a placemark so others can easily see it. Double click it in GE and it'll automatically open to the correct date.
