UK-based Tangent Link hosted the Aerial Firefighting International Airshow and Conference in January. More than 150 attendees, including civil, government and military, converged upon McClellan Airfield in Sacramento, Calif. to see the latest in fire-suppression helicopters and technology. Event sponsor, Russian Helicopters, displayed its Kamov KA-32, with the U.S. Marine Corps featuring the Bell-Boeing MV-22 Osprey. Tangent plans to follow this show with the High-Rise Aerial Firefighting and Rescue Conference during the Dubai Helishow in November 2012.
