Length of Maxim-Magirus Aerial Truck
In the May, 1952, issue of this journal, page 351, a description of the new Maxim-Magirus aerial ladder was published.
The article stated that “with a wheelbase of 230 feet and an overall length of 31 feet 6 inches, the unit is highly maneuverable in short and narrow streets.”
The figure “230 feet” is in error. The wheelbase length is 230 inches, not feet. The editors wish to express their appreciation to the host of readers who discovered the error and promptly called attention to it.
