Helicopter team pilot Kim Hatch holds his helmet. The attached night vision goggles allow him to fight wildfires at night.
A helicopter drags a Bambi Bucket full of water through the sky on its way to quench hot spots at the front of the Museum Fire burning in Flagstaff in July. Nighttime flying is being tested to jump on fires early before they spread.
