USNORTHCOM supports Mexico firefighting effort

A Modular Airborne Firefighting System-equipped C-130 assigned to the 302nd Airlift Wing prepares for take-off at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., April 16. The aircraft is one of two MAFFS-equipped aircraft assigned to assist the Mexican government in fighting wildland fires in Northern Mexico. The MAFFS, which is owned and maintained by the U.S. Forest Service, is a pressurized self-contained firefighting system designed for installation in C-130 aircraft without structural modifications to the aircraft. The system is designed to air-drop fire-retardant chemicals onto wildfires.
