[Attachment(s) from Steven Nation included below]Daughter Nicole (Nikki) Stevens, Captain with Santa Barbara County Fire Department, is working this fire and has sent me some great photos and videos of air tankers in action. Here's one of presumably #911 dropping near Coulterville, CA with lead plane banking off in the distance taken on Thursday or Friday. Not too bad for shooting with iPhone and in full turnouts. Steve NationFire has burned 75,000 acres now with containment just about 30%. Heavy smoke and smoke inversion has grounded Tankers from working the fire. The town of Mariposa was lifted off of the evacuation order.Tankers: #62.#105,#911 at Castle. (at least one Bae-146 did not get number).Fresno: Maffs 4,6,9 C-130 #116. Also heard that Castle ran out of Jet-Fuel on Thursday or Friday and aircraft had to go too Mather Field (Sacramento) for fuel for a short time.
