RWE253 Posted August 8, 2013 Share Posted August 8, 2013 (edited) I wanted to pass along another photo of the 1925 Mack AB that was found not long ago in a SC barn . I serve as the historian for the Lakewood NJ Fire Department and recently passed along a few photos of the unit to the new owner. This photo recently surfaced and I want to pass it along for all to see . Taken in 1928 with one of the member's kid and dog on the rig. This rig was the second mutual aid fire pumper to pass thru the gates At Naval Air Station Lakehurst when the Airship Hindenburg exploded. It was one of a few trucks set up in a long distance hose relay to the pump on the ruins of the ship. This unit actually pumped a 2.5 hand line/ with a nozzle that was used cool the wreckage to enable the recovery of the deceased passengers. I'm working on trying to find photos of this unit on the base that day. Edited August 8, 2013 by RWE253 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
