C-141 Tail Number:

This aircraft was the last C-141 built. It was used for VIP transportation and also flew the Bob Hope tour around during the Vietnam war and the first gulf war. It was CINCMAC's (later AMC) transportation as well.

It was cleaner than the average C-141....actually was cleaner than ANY other C-141! Very low hours (about 21,000) -- about 1/2 the normal C-141.

After AMC moved to C-17's, the aircraft was assigned to a standard airlift role and flew heavily in the gulf war II conflict carrying wounded troops to immediate care in Germany and back home stateside for longer term care. It was last based at Wright-Patterson.

67-0166 was supposed to fly to the boneyard during the 3rd week of January 2006 but was given an 11th hour reprieve and will now be placed on static display at Scott AFB (Home of MAC/AMC). On April 7th, it made the LAST FLIGHT ever of a C-141 on a 'line' mission, flying from Wright-Patterson to Scott AFB. Click this linkfor photos.

Don Reports: This is a photo of the 'Welcome Aboard' sign that was used on MAC 166 for many years. I acquired the sign while 0166 was in Refurb. I was out doing some job or other on her and I saw the sign sitting on the cargo floor (It normally being bolted to the forward bulkhead next to the cockpit ladder, if I remember correctly). The crew chief came down from the cockpit and told me I could have it if I wanted as it was going in the trash, being replaced by a new one. How could I say no to that! I show it to anyone who might care(or Not!).


The following series of photos was submitted to the site by John Mills. These were taken prior to 9/11 (as you can see) and were obviously a planned photo flight for what reason is anyone's guess at this point. But they are great shots of C-141 in flight over New York and the McGuire AFB area!

On April 7th, 2006, 67-0166 made the last flight of a C-141 on a 'line' mission. The aircraft was flown from Wright-Patterson to Scott AFB, and carried a few space-A passengers. Larry Stultz send me photos of the departure from Wright-Patterson a few hours after it left and here they are:

Here's the AF form 59 for the last mission (in Adobe PDF format), submitted by Tom Saucier.


And a final copy of the status of 166 submitted by Dave Grant. I've highlighted a few interesting numbers....total hours: 22,185.5, about half the 'norm' for the C-141.

Here's a link to some more 67-0166 photos taken at the Scott AFB air show in July, 2007.
