Mountain View Fire Department Ladder Truck

Via Flickr:
At a fire station just down the road from Google, Linkedin, and a bevy of other recent upstart companies, they had this rig parked in the forcourt.

It takes two people to steer it, the driver in the cab up front, and a wheelman on top bringing up the rear. It is the biggest ladder in these parts.
