American LaFrance » 900 Series Airport Chief
In 1962 the company introduced a whole new family of 900 Series Airport Chief crash/fire/rescue vehicles. Built on special 4x4 and 6x6 chassis with huge floatation tires and remote-control, roof-mounted turret nozzles, the Airport Chiefs offered all-terrain pump-and-roll capability for jet-age municipal airports. An offshoot of the Airport Chief was the Bristol Foam Pumper introduced in 1966. Built on a conventional 900 Series pumper chassis, the Bristol was equipped with a roof-mounted, remote-control foam turret.
