This style of Magirus dates back to 1966, although of course this unit could be quite a lot newer. In any case, if it is still around, it is probably still at least forty years old, and may be closer to fifty!

When I lived in Leiden (Holland) in 1974-75, all the bays in the Leiden FD station contained Magirus trucks like this. I never stopped to chat, though, so I don't know just when they were acquired.

This is the former engine of the Middelburg fire dept. in the netherlands.It served the dept. from 1979 until 1995.

@Michael: The Leiden Magirus trucks were acquired in the early 70's. The last one left service in 1991.
