“The flying that we do here is the most challenging by far. In the firefighting environment, it’s hot which means the airplane doesn’t perform as well and we’re super heavy because of the retardant we need to carry … it requires a lot of specialized training to do what we do.”
Those are the words of one National Guard pilot called in to help fight the wild fires in Colorado. His story, and others like him, are being told this month on NRA Life of Duty as Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North and Chuck Holton provide an inside look at the devastating Colorado wildfires and the brave individuals working to protect the state and its citizens from their destruction.
