Photographer's Remark

My favourite exhibit at the superb AMC Museum. One of a handful surviving out of 50 built, the Cargomaster was designed as a long-range strategic airlifter, particularly for the transport of ICBMs. All were withdrawn in 1971 when metal fatigue was found. This example was delivered to the 1501ATW (MATS) at Travis AFB, CA in 4.61, the unit becoming 60MAW in 1966. Decommissioned and to Offutt AFB, NE for the SAC Museum in 6.71; like the C-124, flown to Dover inside a C-5 when the SAC Museum relocated in 1998
