As Weasel pointed out this is a MK 5 Crash Tender as his link , down to yellow circle painted on front , possibly even that very machine. Is this Cranfield airfield ?

So judging by LR comment it is Cranfield airfield and IT IS the same Thornycroft, both in series and on 2004 pic from "my" link. Nice coincidence - I was not aware of that.

I unified a little naming of both Nubians from the series - with each other and with other Nubians we have on the site. However in case of all Nubians fire engines we have on imcdb, the unification can goes even further IMO: /search.php?resultsStyle=asList&sortBy=0&make=Thornycroft&model=Nubian

Plot thickens.
I have a fire engine book that says 37RNM was re registered as NNM433P , a mistake I think as NNM433P is also pictured in this episode.

On airfield there was also a identical Thornycroft/Sun/Whitson registered ABM839C and I think this may be it , see second thumb in first comment does it show a c reg numberplate?
