Watch this DC-10 water bomber from 10 Tanker dive straight down a ridgeline to drop its load of fire retardant, then firewall the throttles to pull up clear of the cross-ridge where the photographer is waiting. I recommend watching the video in full-screen mode.
I didn't know you could toss one of those whale-like planes around like that - and I suspect most airline pilots wouldn't even try! Kudos to the pilot for his skills.
You can see more videos of the DC-10 water bombers at 10 Tanker's Web site, and on YouTube.
