12/21/13 98 W, 1 I - + 5 - 2 Color Slides of Raleigh, RDU Airport Apparatus - October 1982


For your Saturday enjoyment, here are some scans of 35mm color slides, as originally photographed by one Joel Woods in October 1982, and recently bought on eBay. Great shots, and great chronicle of the early Mack configurations. Apologies to those outbid. We'll add the Raleigh images to our apparatus registry. Why are two of the crash trucks cropped on the very bottom? Don't know. My slide scanner software is overriding the physical size of the slide, but a bit on the bottom edge. Click once or twice to enlarge:
 





That 1973 Walter was a fun truck to drive and operate. The cab was huge, but the heat did not work well (crap, the heat did not work at all as I remember!). Twin Detroit diesels, no mufflers…
