Default RFS LAT Arrives

The latest weapon in the RFS arsenal against the next fie season arrived at Richmond yesterday.

The new addition to the NSW RFS aerial firefighting fleet, named Marie Bashir, will be based at RAAF Base in Richmond and can operate from some regional airports. It will be able to reach all parts of NSW within an hour.

The aircraft N138CG arrived in the country last week
