Bono and U2 stopped to meet around 130 Country Fire Authority (CFA) firefighters on Tuesday, November 19, after their paths crossed at Melbourne Airport, as the Victoria crews were on their way to New South Wales to help fight bushfires there.

According to CFA Chief Officer Steve Warrington, the band’s plane was parked next to a military aircraft preparing to fly firefighters to Richmond Airport in New South Wales.

“They heard our crews were here and they sought us out to thank us for our contribution and assistance during the NSW bushfires,” Warrington said.

CFA State Agency Commander Mark Kennedy said the band were passing the CFA crews on the tarmac when they decided to stop and meet.

“The band members shook just about everyone’s hand and gave all our members a big pat on the back for the work they have been doing. Bono and the Edge told CFA members they’re doing a great job and they took such a keen interest in everyone’s story," Kennedy said.

“There were a few big fans among our crew, so it was a pretty special moment for many of our members who were about to depart to assist at the NSW bushfires.”
