Neptune Aviation started its 2019 fire season on 7 March. The honor of dropping the first load of the year fell to BAe 146-200 air tanker T-16 (msn E2074), on the Benton fire in the Coronado national forest, along the US-Mexico border. She then spent the night in Silver City, New Mexico. The company’s other 146 air tankers are still in Missoula, but probably not for long.
