Caption: Forest fire, France. Helicopter dropping water on a forest fire that is threatening a village. Firefighting aircraft are designed to scoop hundreds or thousands of litres of water from the sea or lakes, and drop it on fires. This fire is threatening the village of Saint-Mandrier-sur-Mer and nearby military installations, both located on a peninsula on France's Mediterranean coast. This large fire required intervention from firefighters on both the ground and in the air. Photographed in September 2008.
