Modified Boeing 737 Used To Fight Wildfire For First Time

Modified Boeing 737 used to fight wildfire for first time

A modified Boeing 737 has been used to fight a wildfire for the first time, Australian authorities say.

The former passenger jet was deployed as a water-bombing aircraft in New South Wales on Thursday and Friday.

It can carry more than 15,000 litres (4,000 gallons) of water and fire retardant - a large amount, though less than some other water-bombing planes.

However, officials say it offers greater flexibility because it can hold up to 63 firefighters in addition.

The plane dropped several loads of retardant on a fire that has threatened houses at Port Stephens, 150km (90 miles) north of Sydney.

Late on Friday local time, the blaze was not considered an immediate threat to lives. It had burnt through about 1,500 hectares.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
