Army truckie gets into sticky situation in suburbia
EVERYONE has managed to get themselves into a sticky driving situation at some point in their driving years.
But what do you do when you are driving an Australian Army Mack MC3 Heavy Utility Truck towing a trailer and you take a couple of wrong turns, ending up in a cul de sac?
Two Army personnel landed in a sticky situation on Wednesday afternoon, on driving the Mack and the other driving what appeared to be a fuel tanker.
The duo assessed the situation and the first driver had a couple of goes trying to manoeuvre the rig around the top of the cul de sac to get it out of the suburban area.
After a while, he handed the steering wheel over to his mate, who looked to have had a bit more experience than the first one, or was at least calmer about the situation.
Back and forth, back and forth, the rig went.
After about 20 minutes, it was successfully turned around, ready to drive out of Rockhampton suburbia.
These guys deserve a round of applause.
Because experienced truckies, those with 20 years or more of driving rigs of different sizes, would have struggle to get the rig out without causing any damage to anything.
These Army guys didn't leave a scratch…. Maybe a tyre mark or two on a lawn.
Well done, those men.
