Bristol International Airport has bought a new fire engine equipped with so-called "snozzle" technology.
The Cobra 2 vehicle is able to pierce an aircraft allowing fire-fighters to tackle internal fires more effectively.
The £500,000 engine made by Worcester-based Amdac Carmichael has been equipped with the latest equipment from US-firm Crash Rescue.
The investment has been made to update response capabilities as air traffic at the airport continues to grow.
The Cobra 2 will be delivered to the airport on 26 April.
