Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated February 7, 1964 partially reads, "In the continuing training program of the Los Angeles Fire Department, a spectacular exercise was engaged in today at Van Nuys Airport by the fire department and California Air National Guard. Scarlet flames from 500 gallons of high octane fuel sent black smoke soaring into the air over the airport before civilian and military firemen closed in to smother the blaze, deliberately set in sections of a dismantled airplane. This simulated aircraft fire fighting technique phase was under the direction of Battalion Chief Rudy Landgraf of Engine Co. 90." Photograph caption reads, "Firemen train constantly to prepare themselves for all needs - Fire crews work with water fog to extinguish oil fire in burning tank truck during training exercise."
