    Default Tower Ladder Picture

    Can any one tell me where on the net I could find the picture where a tower ladder smashed a car when putting out the stablizors? I'm not sure but I thought it was a FDNY rig?

    Talking I don't have a Clue................

    I can't tell you where to find it, but it was a FDNY Mack/Baker Tower with a stabilizer planted firmly on the hood or trunk of a car. It ranks right up there with the photos of the suction hose running from the hydrant thru a car's windows to an Engine. Park where you shouldn't, strange things happen.........

    It was a Seagrave/Aerialscope. Just a thought.

    Stay low and move it in.

    Arrow Just so you know...

    I noticed a few posters mentioned the words blooper or accident...it was far from anything like that. In fact it was done more or less on purpose.

    If memory serves. The Chauffeur had no choice in the matter. The Truck was at a job that involved bars on the windows and persons trapped behind them. They needed the bucket up to remove the bars on upper floor windows and remove the civilians and as usuall the parking situation in Queens didn't provide enough room for typical operations.
