Former USAF 53-8153 registered to J. D. Gifford and Associates February 1981. Not a great day in Arlington for photography, but I never saw this Boxcar again. On September 7, 1981 N8504W was landing at Dahl Creek, Alaska when the right main gear collapsed and was substantially damaged. Luckily there were no injuries, but the aircraft was hauled away, broken up and the remains burned.

My first US trip included a highly rewarding excursion to the USAF Museum at Wright Field. This great old West Virginia ANG bird was shot from the pool of my nearby lodgings. In 1971 she visited Greenham Common, UK, from her Charleston base as a C-119G with 4-blade props but was modified to 'L' standard with 3 blades soon after. At one point she was also a test bed for Stealth technology, painted black with special $300/gallon paint. The frame still survives, exhibited at Fort Bragg, NC

N90267 is seen here being used as a spares source, possibly by Northern Pacific Transport. A sad end for former USAF Flying Boxcar 53-8154 and ex civil N4999P. It was completely scrapped by 1996, but the forward fuselage was saved. This initially went to Greybull, WY, then in 2006 it was moved to Henderson, NV, and finally in 2013 to the Palm Springs Air Museum in Palm Springs, CA.

In 1992 most C-82's and C-119's at Anchorage were sold to Hawkins and Powers and moved to their base at Greybull in Wyoming. A few C-119s stayed behind, but most of them later also departed to other airfields, such as Fairbanks or Palmer. This N9027K (ex 53-8073) was the only one to remain behind at Anchorage, and it was still there by mid 2017.
