Tanker 910 Jet that drops orange fire retardant — A DC-10 can carry 12,000 gallons of water or fire retardant — 10 times the volume of the standard propeller planes that make up the bulk of California’s firefighting air fleet. The DC-10 air tanker dropped orange-pink fire-retardant foam over East Los Angeles where more than 100 homes were destroyed by fire in the San Bernardino Mountains. The airplane had a serious accident on June 25, 2007 when a downdraft dropped the plane about 200 feet and caused the left wing hit some trees. The left side was damaged, but the plane has been seen back in the air fighting the October 2007 California wildfires.
