FIREFIGHTING CHOPPERS

A helicopter air crane stopped for fuel at Martin Johnson Airport Thursday morning on a flight from Hays to near Memphis. The crane is configured to load seawater to drop on large fires, and is one of three traveling from Medford, Ore., to Savannah, Ga., for sea transport to Greece. A total of nine helicopters is being shipped to assist with summer firefighting.
