Rescue 2 Newcastle airport

Another Newcastle Airport appliance. This is a hose layer, carried about a mile of four inch hose and could also be used as a booster pump. It also carried generators, air compressor plus ladders and it also has a workshop behind the cab area.

Wow, that is a set of Rear Hose-Beds.

Over 5,000 feet of hose...you say..... to restow by hand - must have been some popular with the Fire-Crews, for post-Fire Cleanup, or, after training......

Very interesting rig - thanks, Bill.
