Safety overkill?

Sat Mar 11, 2017 9:49 pm

I was in French Polynesia in 98. At that time all landings and takeoffs on its islands (other than Tahiti) were accompanied by a fire emergency vehicle racing alongside the plane (on a road paralleling the runway). Does anyone know if VT is still doing this?
