ARFF Crash Truck

The Tucson Airport Authority took delivery of a 3000 gallon aircraft rescue fire fighting vehicle. This truck also carries 500 lbs of dry powder chemical. The fire fighting capabilities are great, while driving down the runway at 50 miles an hour it can disperse the foam and dry chemical.

For a truck this size and weight it is quit agile, 0-50 in 31 seconds. Having the opportunity to drive this truck is one of the most awesome feelings.
