Caption: Forest fire, France. Canadair firefighting amphibious aircraft dropping water on a forest fire. A second Canadair is seen in the background. This aeroplane is designed to scoop thousands of litres of water from the sea or lakes, and drop it on fires. It is being operated by the Securite Civile (the French Department of Civil Defence and Emergency Preparedness). The 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.
