Tankers on Sawtooth

Both Tankers 910 & 912 have dropped over 121 thousand gallons over the Sawtooth Fire.
There are almost 400 people working to take out the 24,600 acre fire. We are proud to work alongside such noble men and women, to protect the properties, lives, and wildlife of Arizona.

Tanker 910: On the Job-Arizona 5/18/20 Richmond Fire

Tanker 910 was called to action for the small fire just NE of Globe, AZ, due to its remote location. After only a couple of drops and support from multiple helicopters, the small fire’s fuel supply was cut off; preventing what could have been an even greater disaster from growing. A job well done by the pilots and crew of Tanker 910.

FD: Human-caused 'Stage Fire' burns near New River

It’s been a busy week for Tanker 912

Over the weekend our tanker was involved in fighting not just one, but two separate fires out in Arizona.
Working along with AZ State Forestry during the "Stage Fire", 912’s crew was quick to jump to action when a second fire broke out near highway Loop 202.

A DC-10 In West Texas

Currently, Tanker 910 has been and is still working the Holcombe Rd fire located about 22 miles southwest of Ozona, TX. As of Wednesday, our DC-10 is operating out of Roswell.

Though the fire continues to have a high potential for growth. Crews continue to build direct fire lines where possible and improve indirect lines to prepare for burn out operations when conditions allow it.

Our US Fire Season Contract Has Begun!

10 Tankers' work is an essential service to the public, and though these are difficult times, inevitable travel is a part of fulling that service. However, we are taking the best precautions we can take in order to keep our flight crews and mechanics safe. We hope everyone is staying safe, and thank you all for your love & support.

With fire season on its way, it’s a relatively busy time for 10 Tanker. Tanker 911 is currently in San Bernardino receiving maintenance checks. As for Tankers 910, 912, & 914 they are in Albuquerque beginning preparations for fire season.

LAST TANKER COMING HOME

Our time in Australia has meant a great deal to us. The love and support that the locals have given us has been exceptional. We are tremendously grateful to have worked alongside such dedicated heroes.

However, it is time for our last DC-10 to come home. Tanker 914 and flight crew bided a farewell at Richmond RAAF Base yesterday.
We are happy to know Tanker 914 was made it home safely.

Thank you to everyone down under for all your support!

Tanker 912 is on its way home. Safe travels to our crew look forward tohaving you back in the States.

It's always amazing to watch everyone come together to take out these fires. We're thankful to work along side such dedicated men and women.

WATCH || Australian Army personnel are working alongside ACT Emergency Services Agency to provide support to the Rural Fire Service by mixing and loading retardant into their fire-bombing planes.

#DidYouKnow the DC-10 aircraft can hold up to 38,000L of water or fire suppressant?

8 RUNS OVER ORRORAL VALLEY FIRE

At 39k liters a run, Tanker 912 was able to complete 8 runs over the northern edge of the Orroral Valley fire. That’s over 300,000 thousand liters of fire retardant reinforcing the containment lines around properties in the Tharwa area. #puttinginwork

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much"

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”

With major challenges like limited visibility due to large amounts of smoke it’s clear teamwork, direction, and communication are imperative in fighting the devastating bushfires in South East, Australia. Thanks to the well-planned & choreographed direction by aerial assets such as Incident Command and ground support from the RFS (Rural Fire Service) pilots can navigate through the fires and supply suppressant to where it’s needed most at that time.

Australian Defense Force’s (ADF) Operation Bushfire Assist 19-20, is providing a big help by directly supporting civilian agencies in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. As well as providing logistics, ground support, health, specialist capabilities and accommodation from several bases. We’re happy to be working alongside both the ADF and RFS and the RAAF Base in this joint effort.

Show your support to the ADF, RFS, RAAF and
10 Tankers Chief Pilot Kevin Hopf down in the comments.

Aircraft continue to slow the spread of the more than 120 fires across the state. 102 aircraft were out today supporting the more than 2500 firefighters and support personnel on the ground. While aircraft can slow the spread of the fire ultimately it’s the crews on the ground that will need to extinguish the fire, or Mother Nature if she wants to. Conditions will deteriorate this week and Thursday and Saturday have the potential to be dangerous days. Please play your part, prepare your property and have a plan.

10 TANKER AIR CARRIER incorporated in 2002 to research, develop and operate fixed wing jet aircraft for aerial firefighting. Our founders believed a higher standard of capability and safety could be brought to the industry by incorporating airline standards of maintenance and operations with modified jet transports. Four years of R&D and the investment of over thirty million dollars of private capital have produced a game-changing innovation: an aerial platform that contains a fire in a faster, safer and less expensive manner than any existing or planned Next Generation aircraft.Our Story
