Second use of this regitration on a H&P C-119. This is former N3935, which was painted as N5216R circa 1992 (but never officially registered as such). The first N5216R (cn 10956) had been placed on display in a museum at Battle Mountain, NV by this time.

This venerable Flying Boxcar was registered to Everts Air Fuel in Feb 1995, but almost certainly never operated for the company. Note the faded "U.S. Air Force" titles still visible on the forward fuselage (ex 53-7836). It is unclear when the nice nose art was applied.

815th Troop Carrier Squadron was the Flying Jennies, a name that has carried through to its present designation as the 815th Airlift Squadron. 53-3144 was sold as N8512N. It led an exciting career as a grasshopper sprayer and then used for smuggling TV sets into Mexico. A minor accident brought that to an end. It was purchased in 1987 to become a commandos memorial at Hurlburt, Florida. It was mistaken for a drug smuggler on its flight to Hurlburt and pursued by law enforcement. Now displayed as an AC-119G.

John Reffett bought this Flying Boxcar in April 1989. A failing engine resulted in an emergency landing at Port Lions, AK in July 1989, and the aircraft was abandoned there for many years. In 2002 it was restored to flying condition and flown to Palmer on 4 Nov 2002. It is seen here in storage with engine #1 missing and still fitted with a Westinghouse J34 jet pod.

Owner John Reffett flew this Flying Boxcar from Anchorage to Palmer on 12 Oct 2001, with the intention of using it for cargo flights. However, the aircraft never flew again, despite John's efforts. On 10 Dec 2014 this aircraft did three high-speed taxi runs at Palmer, and at the time the first post-restoration flight was expected "very soon". But by 2018 it still hadn't materialised...
