1959 WNYF
« on: December 07, 2009, 10:22:21 PM »
Does anyone know which issue of WNYF profiled the then new 1959 Mack-Maxim 85ft tillered aerials in the "What's New" section?

Does have that issue for sale, or does anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks,

Lots of old WNYF's for sale on ebay, bidding prices were reasonable. I was able to get a 1965 & 1966 edition in near mint condition.

Hey, 1261truckie:

Did you ever find the copy of WNYF you were looking for? We have it here at the Museum and I could copy or scan the article for you if you'd like. --Damon, NYC Fire Museum

It was the 2nd issue of 59 that had the article on the two rigs. However, the 1st issue had a photo of L-24 on the cover. If you need the article, I just purchased the WNYF DVD.
