Three Americans die after crash of aircraft fighting Australian bushfires

Three Americans have died after a water tanker plane crashed while fighting bushfires in Australia. The crew of the C-130 Hercules plane were killed when it went down near Peak View, in Australia’s alpine region. The crew members belonged to Coulson Aviation, an aerial firefighting company. So far, the US has deployed more than 200 staff to Australia to help fight the wildfires.

My heart bleeds for the families, we as Australians will never be able to repay such a debt. Hopefully our government does the right thing and provides for the families needs into the future. All of the firefighters are hero's no matter where they are from.
