The description on the print states:
Columbia Helitack Copter 404 is a UH-1H Super Huey based at Columbia Airport in Columbia, California. The crew consists of one pilot, two fire captains, and six firefighters. Their primary responsibility is to respond to callouts for initial attack on wildfires and other emergencies. Copter 404 can deliver a 7-person helitack crew with firefighting hand tools and drop 324 gallons of water and foam using a Bambi Bucket. The helicopter and crew are also used in a number of other missions including air rescue, aerial ignition, cargo sling load, troop transport, reseeding operations, and mapping.
Columbia Helitack responds to approximately 160 fires per year in an area that encompasses Calaveras and Tuolumne counties, eastern portions of
San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, the Stanislaus National Forest, and Yosemite Park.
