Georgia Peach

We’re certainly crossing our fingers that we won’t need her but the Georgia Peach has arrived in Fremantle.

What’s a Georgia Peach you’re wondering? She’s a bright orange Erickson Air-Crane that can carry up to 7,560 litres of water with each load, and she’s our best bet against West Australia’s relentless summer.

The Georgia Peach can refill in less than 18 seconds when scooping from the sea or large dam and has arrived at Fremantle port after a busy fire season in Greece.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services have taken this awesome time lapse video showing the Air crane being moved from ship to shore.
