Title

RAC41 Fire Trucks

Description

These huge vehicles represent the evolution of fire-fighting and emergency service equipment needed by airports as the number of flights increased and the size of the aircraft became larger. Both trucks are shown at Roanoke Regional Airport. They are capable of dispensing foam and have other specialized capabilities to deal with accidents. This is certainly a vast improvement over the modified Cadillac used by the airport some decades ago.
