More airport trucks & trolleys: 770104Tu Melbourne International Airport (Vic.). Cathay Pacific B707 VR-HGR being serviced. (Roderick Smith).
I count two Toyota Corolla wagons as service vehicles, with a VW Kombi between them. Closer, is a Bedford J with the airstair, and an unidentified scissors-lift truck with a catering-supply module.
The fuel truck may be a Bedford S; I can't guess the trolley tractors or the van lurking in the deep shade.
Thanks for the recent identifications. I am in an airport phase this year, posting to aviation groups, so a lot of airport vehicles appear as crops from the main view. These two were at Perth Airport, on Tues.4.1.77.

Morris J? Bedford? The extended roof obliterates the original rooflines as a clue.
Dual posted from the 'Old trucks' thread. Most of my airport fuel trucks share a view with airport baggage tenders.
770109Su Bangalore airport (Karnataka, India). Indian Airlines HS748 VT-DXM with assorted trucks & trolleys. (Roderick Smith)
Left rear: Leyland Ashkok.
Van: Mercedes Benz.
Far right (the tanker), probably another Leyland Ashkok.

Likely to be an Ashkok Leyland (Tata less likely)
Here are two more from India, this time Bombay (taken before the renaming).
Both were Sun.9.1.77, probably Santa Cruz Airport (international and domestic; the older airport may have been only for general aviation).
The tractor may be by Tata. I can't guess the van: the bonnet looks like Renault or Fiat. India specialised in self-sufficient manufacturing, using designs under licence. In railways, Alco locos made in Varanasi. In aviation, Hawker Siddeley HS748s, made by Hindustan. In the taxi thread, there are photos of the ~1957 Morris, produced in vast quantities by Hindustan. There were also Fiats as smaller taxis, which hints at a possible Fiat linkup for this van. Earlier in the thread, we looked at Tata Mercedes, with production commencing in 1954.
