 USA – Seven military air tankers are now available to fight wildfires popping up around the nation.

However, none of those planes have yet been used because of a technicality.

The Forest Service says they are not allowed to use the planes unless all other private tanker planes are fighting fires or unavailable for use.

So while the military crews say they are ready to go at a moments notice, they may be stuck on the runway for a while.
