The Canadair CL-215 Super Scooper air tankers operating on Kenai Lake are attracting a lot of attention. Fire officials are warning of the hazards of stopping to take a look.

Stopped vehicles and pedestrians are at risk of being struck by moving vehicles. Fire officials warn against watching from a location directly under the flightpath of the aircraft, as a mechanical failure or falling debris could cause serious injury.

Those who would like to watch the Super Scoopers in action are asked to go to the established viewing area at the Cooper Landing Boat Launch.
