A very good aviation picture but a very sad moment. Óscar Rodrigues a Portuguese Spotter recorded this moment of three Canadair firefighting aircraft were refilling their tanks for another go at Serra do Caramulo fire here in Portugal. The aircraft belong to the French “Securité Civile” and came for a help to this year’s fire season as for all the rented airplanes and helicopters weren’t enough to face all the fires. Only this summer the forest fires already took the lives of 5 firefighters and several houses burned to ashes.
