 :? In the video I see firetrucks but no water?

Why aren't they putting the fire out? It won't matter for insurance, because it's gouvernment equipment anyway.

We need spare parts ..... :roll:

There were several air drops made by a Ventura County Fire helicopter, but they seemed to have little effect.

Where do you get that from? Omega Air Refueling services is a private corporation, and that was a civilian N-reg plane.

Wow, brings back memories seeing a story about Point Mugu. I used to fly in and out of there all the time.
