12/15/09 89 W, 1 I - + 12 - 8 High Pressure Fog Fire Truck For Sale, 1955

Here's another Hose & Nozzle magazine excerpt, this time an advertisement for a "high pressure fog fire truck" circa 1955. Advertised as an airport crash truck with a heavy-duty piston-type pump and a 400 gallon tank, same is likely a military surplus unit. Probably or certainly 1940s. We can probably identify same at the excellent Fire Trucks at War web site. Raleigh-Durham Airport's first crash truck was one of those. Here are a couple pics. Click once or twice to enlarge:
