Water Bombers refilling in Batemans Bay

Ian Edwards was able to capture some close ups of the fire fighting water bombers refilling in the Bay this week. Ian said "They flew in just over our roof at Long Beach, and, as you’ll see, I do mean just. I took all the shots from our deck. They had to come in very low; so low, I had to check that our TV aerial was still there."

"Incredibly skilled pilots, undertaking such a dangerous but worthwhile cause. It was an amazing sight. And sound."

"In the photo above it shows one plane following another, they were coming into a very strong south-west wind, making things even more difficult."
