The photos above represent some of the Firefighting aircraft at Williams Gateway Airport (IWA) during the Arizona forest fires of 2002.
Williams Gateway Airport is located in Mesa, Arizona. A short drive, Southeast from Phoenix. It is on the site of the former Williams Air Force Base. It officially opened for business in 1994. Numerous improvements are currently under way. The airport is used mainly for flight testing and some maintenance by several businesses, as well as flight training by several airlines. Increasingly, cargo aircraft can be seen at Gateway, with the auto industry shipping automotive parts from here in particular. On occasion, some other interesting aircraft may be seen here as well. Boeing and Bombardier have recently (and in the past) sent test aircraft to this airport. Also, Native American Air Ambulance maintains a base here on the airport.
Although you probably won't see a lot at "Willie", if you're in the Phoenix area a side trip to this airport may produce some interesting sightings.
