Fire engine departure

Our old fire engine has finally departed. Our Chubb Pursuer was bought by an enthusiast who explained his purchase with “Well, I’ve always fancied a fire engine”. We can’t argue with that!

The Chubb Pursuer (Reynolds Boughton) has been at the airport since 2002. One of only 15 built, it was originally operated at the CAA fire training school in Teesside before moving to Staverton Airport (Gloucester) in 1993. It has a Rolls Royce B81 engine and can hold 1362 litres of water.

In the meantime we have a new fire engine, providing CAT 1 fire cover. It is built around a Land Rover Discovery and is much more agile than the Chubb!

RAF Valley recently celebrated the end of the RAF Search and Rescue operations. As part of the celebrations, they invited Andrew Whitehouse to bring his Westland WS-55-3 Whirlwind HAR 10. We are delighted that Andrew stopped by at Welshpool for fuel, allowing us to join in the celebrations.
