Sky Crane hovers over Bass Lake

A Sikorsky CH-54 twin engine helicopter battle's the blaze at Bass Lake California. The pilot and crew skillfully swept in over the lake filled with boaters, skiers, party boats and jet skis to scoop up water that fills the massive tank. We were amazed by how nimble this large aircraft was at getting in to the small areas cordoned off by the lake patrol as boaters stopped to watch the show these firefighters put on as if it was just another day at the office.
