So, my travels have now got me about 5 miles away from the North Star Fire here in Central WA. I’m living in a van, down by the heliport. Last night, we decided to go watch the firefighting helicopters come back. We missed the Huey’s and KMax landing (that KMax is sweet, btw), and we saw a Bell 212 come in as we were driving up the hill, but the big Sikorsky S61 was a treat to watch. Now, onto the pics!
