    Link: Low-Flying DC-10 Drops Fire Retardent On LA Fires - Great close-up footage, but it looks expensive. I wonder how much each drop costs.

    They should get those fighters jets in the action too, it may be the only time they would be used for anything else than low flying scare tactics in Iraq.

    it looked pretty cool
    and is a lot more effective and safer than just going in with hoses
    but still cost a lot of money

    To be fair if you are offended by people using the phrase "flame retardant" or suchlike then you need to change the way you look at the world

    No Yokel. They were dropping flame RETARDANT. Something that is unlikely to burn is flame resistant. A flame retardant is something used to make something flame resistant. It has nothing to do with being pc. I`m guessing you`d also bitch about people using the phrase black hole. Like "Yokel`s brain was apparently sucked up by a black hole."

    Retard: Cause to move more slowly or operate at a slower rate.

    Woooow, guys. Calm down now. It`s an actual word, you know?

    Retard means slow, not mentally ill. I`m afraid people have been corrupted by the media. . . "Dat" has replaced "That", "Da" has replaced "The", "Retard" only means mentally ill now, etc. I`ll take my rant elsewhere.

    Yokel1337, go to dictionary.com and find out the meaning of "retardant" and "resistant". You can`t drop fire resistant on a fire because it`s a damn adjective (describing word); if you`re going to nitpick at least know what you`re talking about.

    And bAnnAna, yes, it`s just YOUR sick mind that makes you see that. The rest of us NORMAL people just saw the blood that spurts out of a plane when it flies too low and decapitates a newborn kitten hiding next to the sniper in the clocktower.

    Even though the news makes it look like the whole world is on fire, they always manage to put them out.

    "I wonder how much each drop costs."
    What do you mean? They get the water from the Ocean.
