A small brush fire broke out this afternoon in Santa Clarita, and the fire department was quick to respond, dispatching one of its most highly effective "in-close" aerial fire-fighting tools to help knock the fire down quickly. The Sikorsky S-70 Firehawk helicopter is the civilian version of the military's UH-60 Blackhawk, and has been outfitted with a 1000-gallon aerial drop water tank, along with other search and rescue equipment. The Los Angeles County Fire Department flies three of these helicopters - you can read more about them here: http://www.fire.lacounty.gov/airwildl...
This footage was shot with a Casio Exilim EX-F1 Pro high speed camera, at 300 frames per second, resulting in playback at 10 times slower than real life speed.
The soundtrack is "Neptune Orbit" from the "Mission Control" CD by Technician (yours truly), MP3 album and single track available on iTunes at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/miss... full artist discography and CDs available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com
