The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

New Zealand International converted
This is another view of the 1950C aerial following a decision to remove the booms & convert the appliance into a heavy pump. The appliance spent a considerable time with the NZ Fire Service training centre at Woolston but in late 2011 was sold to the Christchurch International Airport for use as a training vehicle by the aviation crash fire team.
