Thornycroft Nubian Major TMA/300 early 70s

An airport crash tender, powered by a 300hp Cummins V8 diesel, 10 forward and two reverse gears, carries 1500 gallons of water and 150 gallons of foam. Same model served at Gatwick. One never knows when a 1974 Observer's Book of Commercial Vechiles would come in handy.

The watercannon is used during one of the test rounds in the custom made stretch limo challenge (Fiat Panda, MGF, Saab/Alfa-Romeo). L-reg = 1972-73
