1981 Airport Rescue

My first garage sale find of the season was this Airport Rescue from 1981. It was in a bin full of cars priced 4 for $1. It was the only car in the whole bunch that I wanted, so the nice woman gave it to me for nothing. It’s got a fair amount of wear, but at least the plastic water cannons are still intact. Of the few variations, the red French-made version from 1983 is most valuable.
