A fire truck takes flight

Loadmasters with the 439th Airlift Wing, Air Force Reserve Command, load a 1982 Mack 1250 GPM pumper fire truck into the belly of a C-5B Galaxy cargo plane at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst NJ for a 3,700 mile journey to Managua, Nicaragua. Retired from the Mercer Engine No. 3 firefighting company of Princeton, NJ, this fire truck is being donated to a group of volunteer firefighters in Managua.
