I had my first "WOW" moment using Firefighter X today!

Currently, in my home state of Victoria, Australia, there are various Bushfires burning through remote bush. The majority started by lightning.

So I went for a virtual Obs flight today, based out of YHOT in my C337. Victoria has a fantastic public safety app/website/fire map available, so I found the closest out of control fire to YHOT which is listed as the Timbarra fire. It was listed in Firefighter X as the closest fire, so I dispatched a few AI Firehawks to follow out.

The WOW part was when I got to the virtual fire-ground and looked at the detailed map of the freely available Little Navmap and then at the online fire-map.

 

Little Navmap display: Aircraft all above fire-ground. Take note of river, contours and also roads.

And here is the Vic Emergency App/Website/fire map display, showing the fire-ground! Incredible!!

An absolute credit to the accuracy of both FirefighterX and the make and content of Little Navmap!
