Water Dropping

A C-130 Hercules aircraft, equipped with a Modular Airborne Firefighting System (MAFFS), drops water during a training flight over North Carolina April, 30, 2010. MAFFS is a fire retardant delivery system inserted into H and J model C-130s to convert them into air tankers capable of carrying 3,000 gallons of retardant or water that can be discharged in less than five seconds. The aircraft is from the U.S. Air Force Reserve’s 302nd Airlift Wing out of Colorado Springs, Colo. (DoD photo by Staff Sgt. Michael B. Keller, U.S. Air Force/Released)
