Authorities grounded firefighting aircraft battling an out-of-control blaze scorching central Colorado on Wednesday, reacting with caution to witness reports of meteor sightings.

seems to me risk of flying fire-fighting planes is greater than the risk of meteors. What is the chance of a meteor hitting an airplane inflight? Beyond miniscule?...
The link takes you to the wrong story.
You wonder about the qualifications of the people in charge that make these decisions?
There is nothing in the article mentioning meteors?
There is nothing in the article mentioning meteors, ?.

Meteors? What meteors? Nary a word about meteors appears in article. Gotta be more off the wall sensationalism but then considering the source, it's understandable.

I can see the meteors mentioned in the URL....
I think the URL got changed. The first story up there had it and the grounding in it toward the end of the story
It seems like the average person has no idea how to manage risk any more, but then again maybe they never did.
i have never seen nor heard of a fireplane
Evidently you never heard of CL-215 and Cl-415.

nope even though im a pilot
Caution and safety come first !!
