Yes, one of Buffalo's Electra's was in YZH on a three day call out. They flew one day up in Ft. Mac.

The video is one of Air Spray's machines.

Is Buffalo considering maybe converting one of their Electras to a fire bomber?

One is already in action and was fighting in Ft. Mac, two have been converted.
