The tugs used to move our aircraft were much, much larger...4 wheel steering, double ended, and multi engined. Like this one..

That is what they used in Aliens IIRC.

they have similar "short" vehicles at the seaplane base next to where i used to work but only two wheels. old front wheel drive vehicles chopped behind the doors to haul the seaplanes out of the water.


pictures????!!!!!

Why does that look like it is parked on a residential street?
That would be a hell of a commuter car.
