Hauling a$$ in a B3 into the water source with a cinched bucket is hardly textbook.

Some pilots like fluffing around trying to make it look all pretty. They are so slow that they get no water on the fire at all, then it gets out of control.

Get in there and get it done I say.

Flying fast and messy only impresses people who don't fly.

I agree with FF. An operator can fly smoothly and safely and still be more efficient than someone who is 'fast'
