That reminds me of being at Sculthorpe when the Canberras from Marham were there Marham having its runway done, a Canberra came in on a state 2 all the USAF fire trucks trundled off amid lots of smoke and noise, Before they were halfway there our crash vehicle (Range Rover) was sitting on the end of the runway, Canberra goes by Range Rover takes off and passes said Canberra on runway, meanwhile USAF fire service still on there way. I think by the time they got there the aircraft had taxied back to its stand. Funny how you remember things. Now where do i live? hehe:-D

The Bedford Hawsons that we had i think had the Bedford RL gearbox in them. Very solid.

Tim,
It's officially called a tracked aircraft recovery dolly, often referred to as a tracjac.
They were occasionally used by 71 MU at Bicester.
