C-141 Tail Number:66-0177

December 13th, 2005

This is the aircraft that became famous as the "Hanoi Taxi". A huge send-off for it is planned for May 2006, when it will make one last flight from Wright-Patterson to the Air Force Museum.
On December 13th, 2005, a special photo shoot flight for 177 was made to get a bunch of pictures before it is gone for good. The photos circulated widely among many personnel at Wright-Patterson and some good folks sent them along for all of us to share. Here they are:
