Paul's Bombi.
   (Ver 2)

 

In my Beltring 2001 article I had mis-identified a vehicle as a Swedish Hägglund model 202 all terrain vehicle. Subsequently I received the following email from its owner:

Hello Doug
I saw this vehicle pictured at your page, somewhere. It is not a Swedish Haglund or something like that. It a is a Bombardier Bombi, originally built in Canada, as a snow-tractor (Groomer). This one however has never seen any snow because it was bought by the US Air-Force and was used as a mosquito-sprayer somewhere on a tropical island. (I don't know where exactly) These little machines were built between 1972 and 1982, I believe.

The bars mounted on it in the picture are not a part of the mosquito-equipment, but simply to shoot waterballoons, especially mounted on there for a little fun in Beltring. The spraying equipment isn't there anymore.

You probably wonder how I know these things? Well this is an easy one. I am the owner of this particular machine. Enclosed are a few more pictures. If you want to show them too, go right ahead. I have many more pics if you're interested.

Paul and Tjalf
