Lee Wilson yesterday photographed Raleigh's new air truck at Atlantic Emergency Solutions in Fayetteville. The 2015 Kenworth/Pierce will be delivered next week. It'll be added as Air 2 at Station 28 Station 15, along with Engine 15 and Rescue 1. It joins a 2002 International/SVI mobile airt unit, Air 1, which is housed at Station 8. We'll get some more details on the truck's specs and features. See more photos from Lee.

Very sharp looking rig, I love the Kenworth chassis!

Okay so I have a question. I know the Pierce’s like this one are built in Wisconsin, so why do they take them to the Fayetteville plant prior to delivery? Is it cleaned again or are there some final touches left to make?

I would guess that Pierce’s have there plant in Wisconsin , But the dealer has his service center in Fayetteville to check it out, maybe have it lettered (The last pic I saw in the factory it was not lettered) and do any last minute changes prior to delivery to Raleigh
