An LTI family photo after FDIC outside the RCA Dome in Indianapolis featuring a 102′ rear-mount platform for Cleveland, OH; an 85′ rear-mount platform for Indianapolis, IN; and the one and only 75′ rear-mount platform for the Central Stickney FPD. All three were built on Simon-Duplex chassis with completely different cab configurations.

As seen around … O’Hare Airport

This from Colton Latham:

Engine 10S (former engine 10) – 1998 Pierce Lance ?/1500/20 … as I was told by the firefighters on shift. Still going strong with 136,986 miles and hopefully an even longer future protecting the people of O’Hare International Airport!
(Photographed at Rescue Station 3 at a reserve for Engine 9) I am still a little puzzled why 9S wasn’t there instead, but overall I’m just happy to have gotten some good shots. Thank you so much to the crew at Rescue 3!
