Nantucket New Ladder Truck

Nantucket's new Aerial Ladder 1 is coming along well.
The aerial is a 105' Metz, which is very unusual in this area.
The truck itself is on a HME 1871 chassis with body by Rosenbauer / General
in Minnesota.  It will have a 1500 gpm pump, 180 gallon tank, and 20 gallons of foam.
Several photos were forwarded to me by
David George-Nichols. (Thanks David)
