Youtuber ‪João Guimarães‬ captures the amazing skills of a firefighting chopper pilot as he makes the first two of 25 refills at a neighbour’s swimming pool in Portugal, a legal last resort in wildfire situations. João sez:

…he was returning to the airfield from another bushfire when he saw the initial smoke column. He took the initiative to land and start the attack on his own since the fire was so close to houses. He made about 25 refills at the swimming pool, and this bucket carries about 600 liters, if I remember correctly. The swimming pool level lowered not even 40 cm after the mission. The helicopter left when the first firetruck arrived, the fire having already been extinguished.

Another angle here.
