Mercedes-Benz LA-1313 airport firefighting truck

This old bubble-nose Mercedes had been used for a long time at the Hercílio Luz International Airport, which runway is shared with the Florianópolis Air Base of the Brazilian Air Force. In this picture that I took in 2009 it was already retired and on its way to be auctioned, but it was still ready to operate again. Could've easily had a new stretch of life as a forest fire-fighting rig...
