"anytime baby" tomacat logo?
« on: November 09, 2014, 01:34:00 AM »
hey folks
Looking for some info and pictures if possible.  Currently working on former engine 218 and came across pictures of it with the Tomcat (f14) logo with the cat and the phrase anytime baby on it.  Does anyone have any info on why this was put on that engine?  It looks like it was put on some other rigs as well as at least one PD unit.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
Doc

Grumman aircraft on LI made the Tomcat fighter, it had a double tail thus  the symbol...103 had a couple on the rig, anybody new someone who worked at Grumman could have gotten them

if it wasn't for the heat and smoke this would be a great job

Interesting info on the Tomcat symbol. Thanks for sharing, L-103(ret).

Also, the tomcat logo has been used on non-FDNY rigs. For example, Kentland, MD's Tower Ladder 33 has the same "Anytime, Baby" logo on it. Ironically, one of the tower ladders that the company operated was a 1994 Seagrave 75' Aerialscope, ex-FDNY TL17.

Thanks for the info!  Looks like we are going to try to restore it down the line but for now just trying to make it look nice and represent its past. We contacted an artist to try to get them to paint them as well we are looking into having decals made.

Thanks
