Summary In recent years fire-fighting has been revolutionised with an array of technology, much of it making the transition from warzone to the fire zone. The Erickson aircrane is able to suck up 9,000 litres of water in just 45 seconds and with the nickname 'Elvis' is a rockstar of modern firefighting. The FLIR - Forward Looking Infrared Camera can see through haze and smoke to pinpoint burning hotspots. The fight has gone intergalactic as laser based satellites are called into battle and fires can now be detected with high accuracy from space. Witness Australia's first drone test as it flies over a fire at night providing real time data on the movement of a blaze. (Part 2 of 2) (Commissioned by SBS) (Documentary) CC **Final**.
