Fairchild C-123K "Thunder Pig"

Flying since 1956, the Fairchild C-123 is the only aircraft to serve the US Air Force as a glider, prop, and turboprop. Others served as "flying boats." The aircraft served the US in a number of ways including: material and troop transport, medical evacuation (during the Viet Nam War), and assault transport.

 

Yankee Lady B17 Flying Fortress

B-17G-110-VE, N3193G, was delivered to the U. S. Army Air Corps as 44-85829, then transferred to the U. S. Coast Guard as PB-1G, BuNo 77255 in September 1946.  It is now named "Yankee Lady" and flies for the Yankee Air Museum at Yspilanti, Michigan.

Yankee Warrior B25D Mitchell

The North American B-25 was among the famous twin engine medium bombers used during World War II. It was the most widely produced American twin engine combat aircraft, with approximately 10,000 produced, in a total of 8 major models. No doubt, part of its heroic stature derives from its namesake, the outspoken Gen. Billy Mitchell who proved once and for all that bombers could destroy targets, and that wars would nevermore be decided only on land or sea.

This aircraft also comes to us from the Yankee Air Museum.

 

C-46 Curtiss Commando "Tinker Belle"

The city of Monroe, North Carolina and Warriors and Warbirds Inc. brings the massive C-46 north of the border.  One of only a few still flying (most famously by Buffalo Airways of Ice Pilots NWT fame), the Tinker Belle is named after Tinker Air Force Base and is a military version of the CW-20, an early pressurized airliner.

At the time of its production, the C-46 was the largest twin-engine aircraft in the world, and the largest and heaviest twin-engine aircraft to see service in World War II. Don't miss your chance to see an aviation giant.
