Bianca wore a special fire chief hat (thank you so much Bridget!) and she sat right in the front where the fire chief would usually sit.
This specific fire engine was a 1969 International Fire Truck which was pretty impressive.
When we got back, Bridget had to get off and we stayed on while they were parking the fire truck (wow, really impressive how they do it). Just as we went past, Bianca made the siren go and she thought it was really funny: "I made Bridget jump".
I would like to say a big big thank you in particular to John Walker (Ex-Volunteer Fire Fighter and currently Fire and Emergency Collection Manager), Ian Hambly (Road Transport Collection Manager) and Bridget Johansen (Events Coordinator). Thank you so much for organising this very special day for us. We had so much fun and it really was one of those "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunities. Thank you for making Bianca's day special.
Here is Bianca sitting next to John Walker, our driver:
Afterwards Bianca wanted to stay on and look around. She really enjoys visiting MOTAT. Bridget took us to see some of the other fire engines and Bianca enjoyed having a look.
Here are some of the other things we saw:
