Sad....Photo on the Oswego Ledger shows firefighters on the scene when the plane was still intact. No one really made an effort to save it. No equipment or lack of skills?

Yes, lets raise taxes to buy more crap that might be used once in a blue moon.
If you crash in a muddy field and survive I think you got all you can expect.

I didn't say special equipment, the fire fighters are standing there (in their bunkers) not doing anything....Your tax dollars at work, if they're not going to try, why have them?

But either Aurora which owns the airport, or Sugar Grove where the airport is located, should have the equipment. I am not sure it could have gotten there in enough time, but it should have been dispatched pursuant to the intergovernmental agreement.

LOL ya we dont anything special for the OFD.
The field was to wet for them to get otut there & put out a fire.
In the aftermath you see clearly in the pictures/videos truck (s) out there.
Even a firefighter using a hose on the remnants.
No special training just some firefighers that do their job. Great job OFD !
( still ended up cleaning those trucks anyway huh?)
