Shoreham Airport Fire 4.
This picture completes the line-up of appliances at Shoreham Airport in West Sussex.
Fire 4 is again a Carmichael Rangerover Commando 6X6 and was the last appliance to go into service at the airport following an extensive overhaul before going operational.
Fitted with a Godiva UFPX 656/8 fire pump,the vehicle carries 900 litres of pre-mixed 6% FFFP.Like Fire2,its also fitted with two side lines,and carries a three section ladder,G-P line,first aid kit,fire blanket,extinguishers,tool box,etc to comply with the standards required by the CAA for a CAT2 operational airport.
I think I should just mension that in 2010 Shoreham Airport celebrated being the UK's oldest licensed airport having been actually operational since way back in 1910.
