          I suspect that busted tie-rod may have been part of the problem.

            Very easy to do as they have a very high C of G.
            I have seen them that far up on two or three wheels that you get a clear view of the drive train.
            Never actually seen one go over but the way they slop water out on high G turns it's got to be easy.

            Makes it easier to grease the drive train when it's like this.

                That is not a service truck. That is a HIGH DOLLAR Oshkosh Crash Truck. Those start at over $750,000 and go up from there. Sucks to be that guy.

                  That tie-rod must have been held by one of Tuckerfans castings!

                    Can even blame it on icing... it's Bermuda. I guess the drive took the meaning of " LETS ROLL " literally.
                    Wow... where did the time go. I could of swore I was only out there for an hour.

                      Not the most opportune time to ask for a raise.

                          reminds of a few scenes around Okla City this week during the ice storm.

                              Airport Fire Truck Rollovers

                              There's a Canadian group looking at limiting the speed of these big airport trucks because they can only generate on the order of .3g to .45g before they start to oversteer and/or rollover.

                              Check out the very last rollover in their list at the bottom of the page...Burmuda, 1998, maybe these photos?

                              Turns out they just recommend the drivers learn how to drive them without rolling them over.
