 Check out the Photo Gallery for other Redwing pictures

 An interesting review of the Redwing prototype can be seen here.

On the left
From the shape of the rear doors, I would guess this is either the prototype or an early FT6.

Thanks very much to Ross Floyd for sending the scans of this.

On the right
The truck in this picture is actually my truck!

Thanks very much to Bob Vandereyt for this one and others.

FT/6 Variations
  I think the FT/6 Redwing was produced as a pumper (L4P) as well as the Crash Tender (CrT). Some other variations have also been seen.
