    You can assume the owner of the pool is recording the video.

    I`ve heard of this happening before. When the fire is as close as this one, the pool owners don`t tend to object.

    Not particularly impressive flying- though I do applaud those that work as smokejumpers(If they`re still called that).
    I do wonder at the efficacy of this method- the scoop-and-dump method.
    It doesn`t seem to really be that efficient- But I`m not a firefighter, nor have I ever witnessed for myself, a raging conflagration.

    Capt. kangeroo it works pretty sweet, it`s the reason they are used in Oz, the US and canada..

    When i lived in OZ we had bushfires quite regulary and quite near.. one time we were directly under the flight path of a skycrane, thats 9000 liters of waters in one go..

    and yeah the deal is that you fill up your pool/ jacuzzi/ whatever when there is a bushfire in the area..

    The pool owner better be okay with this, as his house was in danger of burning.

    Fatninja.. you`re an ozzie and you ask a question like that? it`s common practice to fill up yer swimming pool/ jaccuzi/ whatever water container you have to A: fight the fires around yer own place. B: to help yer neighbours.

    And yess during a bushfire/ fire they can take whatever water they can find. I wouldn` suggest bitching about it iether. as you might find your citizenship revoked.
