There's a photo from the webcam at the Ramona Air Attack Base from yesterday (Friday 9/12) at the following URL showing one of the 415's arriving.

Sunday morning the new plane (Radio Callsign: Quebec 246, Quebac 244).
They flew over Lake Hodges & Olivenhain Reservoir.

said they couldn't operate in that lake with a 'west wind' if there was one.
nice show they put on! They circle the lake a few times.

Then they flew over Dixon Lake , Lake Wohlford (in Escondido)

Then they return to base after that.

They were talking on Air Tactics 6 151.3100

They were up again this afternoon with Air Attack 690.

I know they checked out Sweetwater Reservoir, I don't know where else they went.

Cal Fire only listed two air tankers as resources in their morning report this morning, so I guess they aren't going to use the Superscoopers.
