More Marine Helos working San Diego County Wildfires (May 2014)

Following up on my post of January 14 where I shared a 6 minute video showing various Marine Helos (and perhaps a Navy Helo?) working the wildfires that burned in San Diego County in May 2014, here is a 16 1/2 minute video where you will see Helicopters from the Marine Medium Helicopter Training Squadron (HMMT) 164, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), from Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton working the Tomahawk Fire. The video is by Cpl. Megan Scullin, 3D Marine Aircraft Wing Combat Camera.

I believe that much of the footage involves a Boeing Veritol CH-46 Sea Knight. You will see external shots as well as internal shots. There are also shots of the bucket being hooked up and deploying the bucket. I enjoyed the chance to see the CH-46 more up close and personal. Nice Video Cpl. Scullin.
