Wildfires sweeping across the Ox Mountains in Ireland have burned over 1,000 acres and almost 265 gallons of water has been dropped on the fire.

Military aircraft is incredibly cool to see, especially when it's out of the (average person's) ordinary.

Jets glide on up and are sent back out once they've been properly refueled by the 9th Air Refueling Squadron.
