This from Mike Lopina:
While at O’Hare (ORD) for annual ARFF & Haz-Mat training, I was able to capture some rigs in between evolutions. 5-3-1 carries a Zumro tent, HVAC equipment for the Zumro & some decon equipment and is based at ORD Rescue Station 1. 8-8-1A is currently housed at the AMC building at ORD. 6-5-7S (Spare), Engine 9 & the new 2-7-8 were at the training facility for Zumro tent set up training. 6-5-T is the training rig for the pit and is a 1988 Oshkosh T-3000 crash rig. 2-9-8 is the training officer for ORD and 2-9-12 is currently the coordinator for the live fire simulators. Also attached is Lockport Rescue 6 getting ready to attack a fire in the Pit and Orland Engine 8 (Reserve) pumping handlines for the Pit and the Wheel/Brake/Interior simulator.Mike Lopina

Anyone have information about who built it?
This is the 4th in the series highlighting the progression of truck companies in Chicago that were delivered with booster tanks and pumps. Previous articles in this series can be found HERE, HERE, and HERE..
IN 1968, CHICAGO RECEIVED ONE SEAGRAVE REAR MOUNTED AERIAL…
Carrying CFD Shop #E-173, this was a 100′ “Rear-Admiral” aerial with a 250-gallon booster tank and a 60-GPM pump. It was assigned to Truck 63 at O’Hare Airport.
Bill Friedrich found the following links to the ‘in progress’ section of the Crimson Fire website which show the current production photos of the engine for the Chicago Fire Department Training Academy and the engine for O’Hare Airport (Crimson #211033-01).
The chassis were featured HERE.
We mentioned HERE about several new units on order with Crimson for Chicago. Brian Cummings, of Marshall, MI, submitted images of the two chassis sitting on the Spartan lot awaiting transportation to Crimson for completion. One represents a chassis for an engine for the academy, and the other, a lime green cab and chassis, is reportedly slated for the airport.
