San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has incorporated an Erickson S-64 helitanker into its operations. The helicopter will be used to install more than 50 percent of the transmission lines for Sunrise Powerlink, a 120-mile power project in California. Featuring a 2,500-gallon water tank, the “Sun Bird” will also fight wildfires with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department during fire season. (From December 2010 Rotorcraft Report)
