BIG RED IS A 1954 AMERICAN LaFRANCE AIR FORCE CRASH TRUCK THAT HAS BEEN UNDER RESTORATION FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. SHE JUST RECEIVED A NEW PAINT JOB AND IS NOW READY TO BE DISPLAYED. WILDCAT CRANES WILL TRANSPORT HER FROM ARROWHEAD SERVES/RICHIE BROTHERS AUCTION BACK TO THE MUSEUM.
DUE TO THE EPIDEMIC , THE MUSEUM HAS BEEN CLOSED AND WE ARE IN NEED OPERATING FUNDS, SO DONATIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
Thanks to Wildcat Cranes for moving Big Red to Arrowhead Services/Richie Brothers Auctioneers, Fort Worth, Texas, to be painted. She will be there until she is looking good again.
