11/09/13 107 W, 2 I - + 5 - 9 Jacksonville Airport Apparatus

Found for sale on eBay are these 35mm slides of airport apparatus from Jacksonville and the Albert J. Ellis Airport. Top is Crash 2, a 2006 Oshkosh Striker 2000/1500/200 foam/500 dry chemical. Bottom is Crash 1, a 2001 E-One Titan HPR 2000/1500/200 foam/500 dry chemical/55-foot snozzle. Photographer not known.

The single-runway airport opened in 1971, says the Internet. Perhaps we have readers down south who tell about the history of the airport's fire department. Guessing these are probably their second- or third-generation of rigs. And just how many airport fire stations are scattered about the state? Check out this page from FDmaps.com for that information.
