Redding fire fighters honed their skills during a simulated airplane fire drill Tuesday afternoon.

Fire fighters traveled to a specialized training facility in Clark County, Nevada to work on their aircraft fire fighting and rescue skills.

As you can see, firefighters spent the day training for the worst scenarios from extinguishing flames on burning aircraft to evacuation and possible rescue of passengers and crew.

It was an effort that participants say is an invaluable training tool for the fire fighters because of the extreme complexity and unique training venue.
