North Cascades Smoke Jumper Base in the Methow Valley is the birthplace of smokejumping. The initial experimental jumps were made during the fall of 1939 using the first Forest Service owned aircraft, an SR-10 Stinson. One revolutionary smokejumper is Fracis Lufkin, who took his first jump in the 1939 experiments. Smokejumping was developed in the late 1930’s as a means to quickly reach fires in remote road-less areas for initial attack.
