    Yep one of the Coulson C130 fleet.
    N134CG operated by Coulson Aircrane (USA).

    They have grounded the rest of their fleet including the 737.
    They have 3 737s in their fleet, but I think only two are flying.
    Not sure if both in Australia.

    And that is a big chunk of the Air tanker fleet now out of action.

    Not sure if they have their helis, including the NVG equipped S61s, in Australia and if they are grounded?
