Crazy Approach to Fire Retardant Drop

Occurred on December 7, 2017 / Fallbrook, California, USA Info from Licensor: "Video was taken at the start of the Lilac fire in North San Diego County. Calfire was attempting to contain the fire with these drops but the fire continued to progress. This particular aircraft came in below the height of the freeway that the aircraft was headed towards, and navigated the overhead wires to make the drop and pull up to avoid the hill."
