    I've made it to California with my aircraft to fight fires and the next day, we come outside and this is what was done to my aircraft. Old Flipper immediately went into suicide mode and tried to kill itself. We had to strap her down to keep her from killing herself. Please pray for her that she makes it through this.

    What the Hell is that????? Either thats quite a prank or there are some real sick people out there that want to make a statement while you are trying to save their fine house and furnishings. I'd just have to have a come to Jesus meeting with someone for an extended period of time if I found them doing that to my transportation.
    Be safe Sniper and watch out for those "hills" those things are pretty tall out there.
    Take care Be safe Poacher.

    What the hell passes for security at that field? Give Flipper our best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    That is some serious shit, ****em, let them fight their own fires. If for any reason they had to make the aircraft more visible they could ask first and then use signal/day glow yellow or orange, that colour is just yucky.

    After you repaint your bird, flip them the bird and fly back home.

    Flipper and her sister pulled out of their slump and put the shame behind them and did their jobs. Here is a couple more pics of the shamed birds doing their work.

    Thank you for putting out our state. I am sorry for what this place has done to you, as well as the precedents it makes for the world at large.
    Glad she got past it, It looks like a "prank" but should be treated as an "assault" (with a weapon....ergo paint brushes should be banned for the betterment of the public, "Its for the children!")

    What sort of bombsight gets used for the dump?

    It's a beautiful shade of pink. I think I found some potential upgrades to your current issue flight suit and and great upgrade to the MIDASH. The rose colored glasses with special bobble would really help you feel better while flying while getting you in touch with your feminine side and the pink flight suite would match Flipper's new homosexual paint scheme. Poor Flipper. Poor Sniper.

    But Darts, No Grease!

    I'm surprised that "Flipper" didn't dump a load of that orange fire retardant on a gay-pride parade in San Francisco...

    Would that be the "flaming ass parade"? He's so gay he has flames coming out of his ass!

    It's called the Mark I eyeball. The picture was taken by our heli-manager, he calls the line in, I maintain a heading and altitude and he calls a countdown and then drop. It's actually pretty effective. If the fire is to hot to approach directly, we will parallel it and at the right moment, do a bank and literally throw the water into the fire.

    As for what they did to me and my bird, I fly with my visor down, so no one will know who I am, but I'm afraid the aircraft will never recover. I was also informed today that the color is not homosexual pink, but "electric salmon" That makes it better!

    Oy. What they did to you? "Electric salmon" flight suit? No wonder the visor is down!!! (SF parade uniform?) [ROFL] [gone] :lol:
