Captain Tough Timmy Gallagher E 88 had us riding the back step even after 1982! Old school, Boss.

FORMER FIRE SALVAGE 4 THEN & NOW.....   scroll through article.... https://ltvsquad.com/2015/09/10/flushing-airport-fire-salvage-and-the-only-nyc-fire-rig-to-ever-be-abandoned/?fbclid=IwAR1o7d6z4F4Ynu92bOZ5moG7wM_DwmWGwL0TRtNRxXWVYP_7DGGVj5wyLaM

 I believe Engine Co 38 also had a similar rig (as Eng 305).

 I think Enging 38 later became Salvage 3, operating out of the former quarters of Engine Co 48 on Webster Ave.

 When Salvage 3 was closed and the firehouse was vacant, I believe it was the scene of Two separate Second Alarm fires.

ENG*91-2 had a new one in '69.....ENG*242 had one which became the original Rig when SQ*1 was re organized in BKLYN in December 1977.

Yes, the Goodyear blimps moored there during the 1965 World's Fair. PD aviation had a spot there also. To the local's it was known as 'Speeds' airport. Linden place was always flooded after 5 drops of rain it seemed and Queens Transit's Q25/34 came through Linden Place which curved into 23rd avenue on it's way to 5th avenue & 119 street in College Point, the last stop northbound. That was the 'Orange Bus' as opposed to the 'Green Bus' of the NYCTA.

The Mack R model in the airport was originally Engine 277's rig. It went elsewhere in 1972 when it was replaced by a CF model Mack.
