[californiadisasters] Kit's Tanker #912 Update For August 30, 2014

For reasons that elude my understanding, I have not been sharing these posts with my own group but have been sharing them on Fire Bombers group on Facebook. This ends now. Kit over on Airtankers group on Yahoo has authorized me to share his newsy posts which I have been doing albeit on a more limited fashion. Henceforth, I will title these posts "Kit's this or that Update".... just an FYI for you all: 

"Ten Tanker Air Carriers DC-10 Tanker #912 (N522AX) has joined her sisters Tanker #910 (N450AX) and #911 (N17085).  Tanker #912 arrived at Castle on Saturday morning (8-30) from Albuquerque NM. Castle,CA formerly Castle AFB which was home for many many years to the mighty B-52 is now hosting the biggest Tankers in the world. "Castle California is truly Tanker City U.S.A." at least for the time being. There have been no reports of the Tankers working the "Happy Camp Complex" as weather conditions were not good for operations today."
