Dash 8 à la Réunion
This book was born in collaration between the Civil Security, the Dash 8 crews deployed in Reunion, the Prefecture communication pole, Thomas Campeaux (former Sous-Prefect based in Saint Paul during the wildfires of 2010 and 2011 in Maïdo), and the photographer Pierre Choukroun.
In 2010 and 2011, Reunion encountered the worst wildfires in its history. To face this catastrophy, authorities decided to call for air backup, and chose the Dash 8. The fire would soon be extinguished thanks to that aircraft. Since 2012, the Dash 8 is sent preventively to Reunion each year, from October to December. Its capacity to intervene very quickly on starting wildfires allowed to protect the island’s forests effectively. This book introduces this plane on its missions in the wonderful landscapes of Reunion Island.
The photographs in this book have been taken over a period of 5 years. They are the work of Pierre Choukroun and Thomas Campeaux. Download a presentation of the book : Présentation
