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 International - KO2608
See images 30479 & 30480. This is a former New Zealand Fire Service International 1950C that was originally fitted with a Thibault boom. It was re-engineered by the Fire Service as a heavy pump and was a training appliance for many years. Following disposal it was acquired by the Christchurch International Airport. It was redecorated to mimic a jet fighter as part of its role in the 2016 Variety Club Bash.
