About the Cover: Writer/photographer Mark Bennett set out to find some helicopters fighting fires and found the Erickson S-64F Aircrane “Elvis” filling its tank from a pond before using that payload against the Pole Creek Fire, southeast of Salt Lake City, Utah. See what else Mark found in his photo essay, “On the Trail of the Dragon Slayers.”
