Pushback tractor is a truck used to push the planes around the terminals to avoid damaged caused by picked up debris from the ground by the planes' engines. These vehicles are low profiled and very heavy (up to 55 tons or more). Companies which produce these vehicles insist on using them to pushing the planes all the way to airstrip to save air petrol and to reduce pollution. Refer to google for more information.

I build this truck when I had seen some photos of the airfields. I also wanted to use my new white bricks and take a break from telehandler project.
The vehicles is driven by rear axle only. Steering is performed by medium motor with double reduction.
MOC is very simple but I tried to make it look as nice as possible. I don't have many white bricks though but I hope you will enjoy it. Check the gallery!
I shot and edited short movie.
Any critics and comments are encouraged.
