Crash Trucks “90 Seconds from Death” 700731

Aircraft crash fires and the high performance truck design characteristics required to fight them are discussed.
Power-to-weight ratios as low as 75 lb/hp enable these unique crash rescue vehicles to attack and blanket an aircraft crash fire with up to 6000 gal of expanded foam/min. To insure high levels of reliability for such life saving vehicles, very rigorous Aberdeen Proving Ground Test Programs were performed and are discussed, along with the disclosure of the planning and scheduling required for on-time contract completion.
