Fighting Fire

Leading Edge Aviation's UH-60A Black Hawk dropping it's load onto a fire near to Nelspruit airfield in South Africa. This is the first civilian operated UH-60 in Africa, the company are hoping to revolutionise the aerial fire fighting business in SA.

To get this shot it was relatively straight forward, what made it hard was the long line for the bambi bucket that UH-60 uses. So taking that in to account I had the camera ship pilot stepped out to the left and above of the UH-60, shooting into the light to try and get the water backlit as it fell from the bucket.
