yes - sharing with another country does have some cost advantages - but 
transferring the aircraft twice a year is not that cheap and foreign 
crews do cut down on local geographic knowledge and ground crew 
interface (if the iarcraft a present all the year through, the local 
fire brigades can use the non-fire season to train with the air crews)
