RE: Rescue Truck At JFK Severely Damaged (photos)

The $750,000 number is the overall cost of the truck. It might be an insurance write-off if there is more damage to the structure than visible in the distant photos.

LGA was built before airport security limited people without boarding passes, and it's been difficult post-9/11 to build shop beyond security.

Those hangars are actually United hangars. The AA hangars on the west side seem to be unaffected.
