Some from Tyabb Airshow, just outside Melbourne Australia. Judy Pays collection is based there, along with others.

Thanks! I like the irony of a Toyota tug pulling its former enemy!

The Jet Age Museum has an interesting, likely pre-WWII, fire cart:

Finally, I should note that while a number of the link pictures in this thread are now broken, I have been consistently archiving each page in the Internet Archive. So if there is a picture missing that you would like to see, enter the URL in the Internet Archive and it should appear.

As prompted by a different thread, the Manx Aviation and Military Museum has four aircraft recovery dollies and a bomb trailer strengthened to be used for aircraft recovery on display:

Not that it would help much for that side of the Atlantic but somebody invested a lot of time in a labour of love some years ago.

RAF Ground Support Equipment Since 1918 by FJ Adkin
ISBN 10: 1853105627 / ISBN 13: 9781853105623

It's interesting to dip into now and then but I guess if I sat down and actually tried to read the whole book it would be a great cure for insomnia. Riveting it isn't...

Thanks a bunch! I may have to agree that it isn't that interesting, (and I'm afraid of being pigeonholed as the GSE guy as a result of this thread) but it would definitely be a useful reference.

Apparently the only remaining APA-12 starter version of the GAZ 69, used to start Mi-1s and Mi-2s, is on display at the RepTár Museum of Szolnok:

The Hoosier Air Museum has since closed (or at least moved to Kruze Plaza complex to become the the Hoosier Air Experience), but they had a white Clarktor:

Finally, the Grimes Flying Lab has a 1948 Jeep CJ-2 painted red, white, and blue to match their Beech 18:

Has anybody any info on a gasoline powered, US Navy P-36 Airfield Maintenance and Line Service Vehicle, built around 1963 by the Frank G. Hough Co.?
It looks a bit like a Mule, but has a box cowling over the engine, which is mounted on the right side.
Any info or photos would be great as I'm trying to track one down.

From my allotted 20 minutes of google surfing it appears that the Hough P36 was a top secret design and no pictures were ever allowed of it. IF someone did take pictures, their camera was confiscated and the film exposed to hide all evidence.

I see a C-1 stand next to the plane and if I remember correctly a MA-2 ( MA Deuce) with the AC and DC power cords connected to the plane, it could also provide air for starting.
