Wyo Air Nat’l Guard Practices Firefighting

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Some of the gray Wyoming Air National Guard C-130 transport planes that loop around Cheyenne on frequent training flights are getting ready for plenty of firefighting action this summer and in the years ahead.

This week, Guard members sharpened their firefighting skills, flying between their base at the Cheyenne airport and a practice range 100 miles away. Planes roared just 150 feet above the rolling terrain of Camp Guernsey in southeast Wyoming to dump a few thousand gallons of water at a time on predetermined targets.

The water pumped onto the planes stood in for fire retardant that would be dropped during the real deal.

Guard members will be flying training missions for the fourth straight day on Thursday.
