Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I know they are not technically Firehawks. Smokehawks? Ashhawks? Anyhow … Anybody happen to know what the pepto pink the Cal. Guard has been using on their helos for wild fire work is? Is there an FS # for it? Also, anybody have a clue why they went with this instead of the water soluble International Orange the Air Guard uses on their C-130s?
No idea why it is pink or the shade, but here is a recent discussion on them from Finescale Modeler.
Salmon … trout… maybe bass … if they loose an engine filling the bambi bucket! On an off tangent … why do strippers and hookers use the name Bambi? Bambi was a DUDE!
