Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 19th 2008
6 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 20, 2008 MB YOUR NEW WEBSITE www.innerwestweekly.com.au Helping from above to see Malcolm in action go to www.innerwestweekly.com.au Malcolm does his thing at Sydney Olympic Park. Picture: PHIL BLATCH WATER works exploded when Malcolm showed off his skills at the Newington Armory last Friday as part of the launch of Sydney's first air crane. Emergency Services Minis- ter Tony Kelly joined Federal Attorney General Robert McClelland and NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) Com- missioner Shane Fitzsimmons in welcoming the first air crane of the season, known as Malcolm, to Sydney. As part of the launch, Malcolm did a low-level pass over the Newington Armory, before showering the site by doing a water drop. Malcolm, who has travelled all the way from the USA to assist firefighters during this year's bush fire season, will be based at Bankstown Airport with NSW's second air crane, Isabelle. Isabelle will arrive next month and be available for deployment across the State and interstate, if needed. The pair are part of a fleet of about 100 aircraft available in NSW for firefighting effort. ''Carrying up to 9000 litres of water, the air cranes are especially useful along the urban bushland interface in populated areas like Greater Sydney,'' Mr Kelly said.
