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

MAN TVAC WrL NWFRS Airbus Broughton YN58 DSU
June 2018 Fire Brigade Soc visit. The bodies on these were started by TVAC but finished by Welsh F&RS workshops due to financial difficulties at the bodybuilders in late 2008/9. TVAC=the vehicle application centre, Leyland, Lancashire.
This particular appliance was transferred from NWFRS to Airbus as their domestic response to this large site employing 6000 workers, that builds all wings for Airbus planes.
