Description

The Airport Rescue is a Hot Wheels Original Model based upon the Oshkosh P-15 ARFF Crash Truck (with the "ARFF" standing for "Airport Rescue Fire Fighting"). This airport firefighting beast is a 65 ton (130,000 pounds), 8x8 vehicle that was first fielded in 1977. It carries 6,100 gallons (23,100 L) of water and 515 gallons (1,950 L) of foam, designed for all-weather operation at airfields for fire suppression. Two 1,250 gpm (4,700 L/min) pumps and two 1,200 gpm (4,500 L/min) turrets delivered the water and foam. The Oshkosh P-15 ARFF is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8V92F V-8 engine mated to an Allison 750DRD 5-speed transmission. The huge P-15 weighed 59,000 kg (130,860 lbs), with dimensions: length 13.8 m (45.2 ft), width 3.1 m (10.0 ft), and height 4.2 m (13.8 ft). The Oshkosh  P-15 was featured in the 1987 Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most powerful fire engine (of the time period).

This casting debuted in the 1981 Hot Wheels Workhorses series. Since the real Oshkosh P-15 is so huge, this model has a very small scale. Where most Hot Wheels cars are approximately 1/64th scale, the Airport Rescue is about 1/160th. This model has two rotatable water guns (or turrets) on top. Due to the fact that this beast has four axles, it was only issued a couple of times. The only other Hot Wheels model with four axles is the Construction Crane.
