Scania 310 Magirus Snorkel Hydraulic Flatform (F48) & Magirus 37 CS Aerial Turntable Ladder Platform (F104)

Scania 310 Magirus Snorkel Hydraulic Flatform (F48) & Magirus 37 CS Aerial Turntable Ladder Platform (F104)
Once upon a time, the HKFS was full of Dennis fire engines, there days it's mostly Scanias.

While exploring the area near my Kowloon City hotel, I came across the Ma Tau Chung Fire Station. It must have been my lucky day, as just as I was approaching the fire station, its folding gates opened and the firefighters rolled out the fire engines.

It turns out that they're doing their daily morning routine to test the equipment to make sure they're in perfect working order. This series of photos shows F104 (an aerial ladder platform), F470 (a pumper) and F48 (a hydraulic platform) being tested.
