DC-10 Tanker Finds Home in Rockies

A DC-10 air tanker used for fighting large-scale wildfires will have a new home at the Casper Natrona County International Airport.

Last year the rocky mountain region was victim to several large-scale wildfires and at times certain states didn't have the necessary resources to fight back.  However, with the DC-10 Air Tanker here in Casper that won't be the case anymore.

The company 10 Tanker Air Carrier made the decision based on Casper's central location and their accommodating infrastructure.
