Three American specialist firefighters have been confirmed dead when a plane crashed in southern NSW.
The three crew members died when their Hercules C-130 crashed around Peak View, northeast of Cooma.
"Tragically, there appears to be no survivors," RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons told a press conference.


If it's the truth....it can handle the pressure !!!

Tragic, but I can't think of a better cause.

Sad. Flying low and slow is dangerous enough but that job is the next closest thing to combat. RIP.

Saw that this morning. May they rest in peace, they were truly putting their lives on the line for the noblest of causes and made the ultimate sacrifice in the process.

RIP

I lost my buddy during firefighting flight , I talked to him at the strip ,we were going to go for a beer but he had one more mission to fly . So we decided to meet next day , on the esy home I heard about plane accident ,and somehow I new it was him .
Went to his funeral and i told myself that i will never attend another one, where parents bury their kids ,that was horrible .
