Comments: Hi Muruga;

Long time no check in.

Been with you since the HAZE of 1997-98.

You are one of the few people in the
whole wide world who completely
understands what we're up against with
the US Forest Service and Canadian
counterparts with the world's most
powerful firfighting aircraft; the IL-76
waterbomber, from Russia. How do you
hide such a strategic firefighting
machine?

For those of you not familiar with the
controversy, update yourselves by
reading the last few paragraphs of this
Wikipedia page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilyushin_Il-76

Make sure you also read the links.


Do not expect help on this issue from
Europe.

Do not expect help on this issue from
Australia; although to Australia's
credit, they have at least 10X the
testing that the Americans have done.

We've put in a request to petition the
Malaysian Embassy in Washington. We'll
see what happens with that in the next
days.

Glad the air cleared and hope the cloud
seeding works.

All the best;

JohnA
