Air Costa Jaipur to Bengaluru wins Arch of Triumph with solo effort
Shame on you! A bad week for airport fire and rescue services everywhere with only one entry in anna.aero’s “Arch of Triumph” Fire Truck Water Arch (FTWA) competition for the Air Costa Bangalore to Jaipur 15 October route launch. Not the bestest-ever winning FTWA score (20.7) for a single-entry week – that honour still belongs to Busan Airport Peach Osaka to Kansai (13 September).
Remember: the airport that achieves the highest score in what remains of 2013, will also be crowned this year’s anna.aero “Arch of Triumph Champion.” A special guide of how to play appears at the bottom of this article.

Air Costa Jaipur to Bangalore 15 October
Marc: 4.6 Toblerone. What is this global fascination of the world’s airport fire fighters with Swiss chocolate? Do they use it like Lego to build huge structures on the pool table during the endless hours of waiting for something to do? Clearly the shape is etched on their minds.
Paul: 5.0 At first I wrongly credited this water arch to the Jaipur end of the route. This wasn’t entirely my fault. Bengaluru, population of 8.5 million, is one of the powerhouses which is transforming India. So why are we not getting any of that in this photo? No disrespect to our readers in the DPRK, but this could be a regular Wednesday afternoon at Pyongyang’s Sunan Airport. Dear Bengaluru friends – please give us a bit of local flavour!!!!!
Ralph: 5.6 Definitely a day on which coloured water would have helped. Intersection point is good (right above aircraft), but these trucks could have done with dialling down the pressure a bit, and lowering their aim.
Steve: 5.5 Slightly above average score from me for a slightly above average FTWA.
