Found a few more at a lesser known museum in New Zealand:

GSE at the Ashburton Aviation Museum
  • OLB Bedford Truck, Chassis Number OLB219465 - Previously used by the RNZAF on the North Island

Again, while more generally transport and not strictly aviation focused, The Rahmi M. Koç Museum in Istanbul has an aircraft tanker truck on display. It is apparently a White 3000 and has Mobil Aviation logos applied:

Note that the museum may have other GSE given the airstair and trailer in this photo:

On a similar note, the California Science Center also apparently used to have a White 3000 sitting next to its DC-8. It doesn't seem to be there anymore, and its unclear whether it was actual GSE in the first place:

They also had a Ford F1 fuel truck sitting next to a DC-3, to which all of the above also applies.

I found two museums that have O-11 fire trucks on display.

The Aerospace Museum of California has an A variant, 54-L-69, on display:

The Castle Air Museum has a B variant, 57L2404, on display:

On a related note, an O-11B that was on display at Barksdale Air Force Base was put up for auction along with a M43 ambulance back in 2012.

Finally, I would also like to take a second to quickly point out the website Fire Trucks at War, which is an excellent reference on the subject of U.S. military firefighting equipment.

There's one of those White fuellers at a closed airport in the Sacramento area. Hasn't moved in years.
