Tanker Plane Fighting Australia’s Bushfires Crashes, Killing Crew Of 3

An air tanker operated by Canada-based Coulson Aviation drops fire retardant on the Morton Fire burning in bushland close to homes at Penrose, south of Sydney, Australia, earlier this month.

The crash occurred south of the capital, Canberra, as Australia continues battling massive fires that have scorched a Pennsylvania-sized section of the country.
