Both crew members were killed when the plane went down just northwest of Denver yesterday.
They had been fighting a 12- hundred- acre wildfire that's threatening nearly 300 homes.
The deadly crash has prompted the F-A-A to ground all 38 air tankers now fighting wildfires in the Western U-S.
It was the second air tanker disaster in two months--
Three men were killed in California last month when the wings of a tanker snapped off in mid-air.

Problems with the Department of Motor Vehicles' computer system could make it difficult for some people to renew their driver's licenses next month.
The problem comes from people entered with the same Social Security numbers, or with discrepancies in their names and birth dates compared to the federal Social Security Administration's computers.
The D-M-V does not have the staff to track down every discrepancy in its computers, so it leaves it up to drivers to fix the errors.
The problem is believed to affect about three thousand people.
Over the last two years, the D-M-V has found 200-thousand entries with problems in its computer system.
