After more than 30 years of faithful firefighting service (9,952 flying hours), the CDF transferred this nice little airtanker to the Columbia Airport Authorities on 7 Apr 2006, for display at their airport. Tanker 76 is located on the remote side of the runway, hence this distant and somewhat heat-hazed shot.

This unknown Huey has been a ground trainer at the Hemet-Ryan airtanker base since at least 2003. It is generally quoted as UH-1F c/n 7108 (ex N490DF, 66-1212) or UH-1H c/n 12375 (ex N490DF, 70-15765). But it is neither. It is a long cabin, so a UH-1D or UH-1H and definitely not a UH-1F, and UH-1H N490DF c/n 12375 was still operational with Cal Fire by 2018.
We only know for a fact that in 2003 this ground trainer still carried "Vina Helitack" titles, and tanker number 205. So it is a UH-1D or UH-1H that operated as "Copter 205" for the Vina Helitack before 2003. Suggestions welcome!

This Tracker never served as an airtanker, and was never officially registered. It is an S2F-1, ex BuA136745, which was delivered to the Japanese Navy on 12 Mar 1959 as 4146. In Oct 1983 it was acquired by Hemet Valley Flying Service as a spares aircraft and stored at at the Hemet-Ryan airtanker base. In 2001 it was restored and placed on display as a memorial. The text on the memorial plaque reads: "Dedicated in memory of Lloyd M. Venable - A pioneer in the aviation industry - Founder of Hemet Valley Flying Service - 1946. Born Oct 3, 1906 - Died Feb 1, 1991."
