No, that photo isn’t photoshopped. Taken on the 4th of July in Southern California, the DC-10 P-3 Orion fire retardant air-tanker takes a low flyby to drop its payloud on flames below… it’s an incredible shot. Check out The Big Picture for some more high-res shots of the fire fights of California.
Hope everyone had an otherwise safe and fun Independence Day… (we don’t even really call it that anymore, do we?)
EDIT: Thanks Leslie for the comment on the correction of the plane 🙂
