The Mack B-85 firetruck that responded to the 9/11 attack at the Pentagon

Recommended Posts

I remember reading about this apparatus within weeks, maybe days of the attack. It's really cool to see that a truck, 60 miles away, was known by someone, operating at this large scene, who could make the call to get it in there.

Several years ago, I exchanged e-mails with Michael Fyock, who was the Chief of the Woodsboro, MD Fire Department on 9/11/2001. He said that shortly after 9/11 the Mack ladder truck was sold to the former owner of Interstate Mack in Hagerstown, MD. I don't know if he still owns it but there is no doubt that this truck and crew played a big part in one of the most infamous days in U.S. history. It would be nice to see it in a museum. There is a book about the Pentagon on 9/11, "Firefight - Inside the Battle to Save the Pentagon on 9/11" that has a chapter devoted to the exploits of the crew from Woodsboro and Ladder 16.
