The Lockheed C-141 Starlifter was a heavy lift military aircraft flown exclusively with the U.S. Air Force with the exception of one C-141 being flown by NASA. It was designed to replace the C-124 Globemaster, a slow piston engine aircraft. It first flew in 1963 with production deliveries beginning in 1965. A ferry range of over 6000 miles, it could carry loads of up to 90,000 lbs. over short distances. It could carry up to 154 troops or 123 paratroopers. C-141 Starlifter's were used extensively during the Vietnam War delivering troops and supplies to airbases throughout East Asia. In 1973, C-141s were used to evacuate American P.O.W.s from Hanoi North Vietnam flying them to Clark Air Base, Philippines. The C-141 was modified in 1979, stretching the fuselage some 23 feet. The Starlifter remained in service for nearly 40 years and finally being retired in 2006.
