Photo Comment

This C-119G is former RCAF 22122, which became N8091 in 1970. Acquired by Hawkins & Powers in January 1976 but not used and stored at Greybull, WY. Restored to flying condition in 1988 and flown to March AFB on 21 Sep 1988 on delivery to the museum. It's sad to see that more than 20 years later the aircraft is still unpainted. USAF insignia and fake serial "0-22122" were applied in the 1990s, but by 2007 they had been removed again.
