WATCH: A helicopter collects water from a swimming pool to help fight the fire that has flared up again in Cape St Francis and surrounds in the Eastern Cape.

To meet its demanding production schedule across the austere sub-Saharan environment, South Africa’s Savannah Helicopters turned to the SHOTOVER F1 for its versatility, light weight and ease of use. The company mounts its SHOTOVER F1 on a Eurocopter AS 350 B2, ZS-RWC and the system has performed effortlessly in extreme conditions of dust and heat including temperatures in excess of 118 Fahrenheit.
