1970s photo Fairwood Common former RAF base. Unipower formed the basis of quite a few ACTs at this period. I wrote an article for a magazine called Fire World many years ago about the marque.
Not sure of fire engineering on this one.

Thanks, Petros this is interesting. I came across two. We had one at Leeds/Bradford in 1979. Bodied by Angloco with a RR B81 petrol engine. The other was at CAA school at Stansted, similar open architecture to this but a monitor platform accessed from the outside. I quite liked the machines to work with, although the LBA one was "light" in the rear end in the wet.
