A press conference was held at Van Nuys airport in Los Angeles on August 26 to mark the 20th year the Quebec "Superscoopers" have been on contract with the County of Los Angeles, The Superscoopers (we know them as water bombers in Canada) help fight fires in the county's wildlands, mountains and valleys. Ironically, the press conference got off to a late start due to a fire alert.
