RAF Fire Service
Alvis/Pyrene MKVI Crash Truck
This was the first MK6 production model, made in 1956. Despite having the same outward appearance as later models, the MK6 has a smaller foam monitor in comparison. Production of the MK6 ended around 1963, although they remained in service until 1978. This vehicle spent some of its time at RAF Wyton in the 1970s and in 1976 was downgraded to instructional assembly. Records show that this crash truck served in Coastal, Transport, Fighter and Maintenance Commands. Seen at the Museum of RAF Firefighting.
