A Mi-17 V5 He­li­copter of the In­dian Air force (IAF) was req­ui­si­tioned on June 17, 2018 for dous­ing the flames on a mer­chant ves­sel MV SSL on the shores of Sun­der­bans. The He­li­copter car­ried out Bambi Bucket op­er­a­tions and doused the fire on the ship with 15000 litres of wa­ter car­ried in six shut­tles. The crew dis­played great pro­fes­sion­al­ism and dropped the wa­ter with pin-point ac­cu­racy over the ex­act lo­ca­tion of fire and fully doused it within a short pe­riod of time. Ear­lier this ship was drift­ing and was an­chored with the help of Naval com­man­dos.
