National / Incident @ O'Hare, delayed
« Last post by grumpy grizzly on Today at 10:05:11 AM »
During yesterdays storm a jet went off the runway. There were no injuries and all were removed by a portable stairway. This is the predecessor to the current one, it was a 1979 Ford F-350 shop-built apparatus, some sources indicate it had 300# dry chemical.

Volvo N720 - Your work is certainly Impressive, no doubt about that. Every single detail part of it. You certainly have a very special talent.

 I think you had mentioned that you had been aware of this sites other model fire truck builder, Tom E., aka "guitarman314". I think that he has done a few models custom built for a few guys on here. His work and attention to every detail is a lot like yours. You can certainly contact him through the message feature on this site. Tom is also a personnel friend to many of us here.

 I appreciate you taking the time to join our group. As well as posting those photos with progress reports and explaining to us what the fire service of Sweden is like.

 On a side note - if you and "G-man" ever decide to team up on a worldwide business, marketing your products, I want to be the FIRST Guy in line considered to be your CEO (Chief Executive Officer). We'll give those Wall St Stock Market Executives something to really think about.

Youre a funny guy  :D :D :D

Im also glad you like my R1. Your support means a lot. Its soon time for planning the body. And Im not sure of the size yet. Still tying to find the wheelbase. Its easier if Ive that.

Today Ill continue with the wipers and the rubber around the windshield. More about that later today  :)

`Im sure, and hope, Tom and me will hook up some day.
