The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

New Zealand Hino - NO185
This 1989 GT11-18 was allocated to the Royal NZ Air Force & served at the Hobsonville & Whenuapai Air Force Bases. It was sold to Waimakariri District Council & has been allocated to the Waikuku Beach rural fire party. A feature of these appliances was the provision of a large top mounted tank opening to allow the 2900 litre tank to be refilled from the air by helicopter.
