Already been decomissioned from service.In 1999 i used to drive along the Jalan Manggis where i found a house where the olm Brunei DCA fire appliance is kept.At that house i found the Chubb RIV and a Extending staircase vehicle (i don't know what the make).But now the house is gone along with the fire appliance.

The staircase unit could have been the Bedford/Pyrene one.

I used to drive one in at an Air Base in Saudi Arabia. Was a really nice truck.

Brunei DCA Fire Department still used this crash tender at their no.2 sub-station which provide fire cover for the hangars at the Brunei International Airport (BIA).
