Fire Mapper grounded for 3 weeks

The "Fire Mapper" aircraft operated by the U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Region has been providing some excellent images of fires for several years. Check them out HERE. But it has engine problems and will be out of service for the next three weeks. You would think that with the situation in California, that there would be a way to get the aircraft back in the air in less than three weeks.
