Gareth Catt explaining the incendiary machine to Errol Samson

First Martu Incendiary Machine operator

An aerial burning trip in May was a great success with good results achieved by the Jigalong and Parnngurr ranger teams.  A particular milestone for the fire program on this trip was our first-ever Martu incendiary machine operator.  Errol Samson was a very modest star.  He completed the training in Alice Springs earlier in the year and worked flawlessly as a part of the air crew from Well 18.
