Just dropped in to have a looksee. Nav from 41st MAS KCHS 1975-79. 2200 hours in those 4 years. Got SACumcised when nav's were ousted by INS. Good years at Charleston and some really great flying to some interesting places. 5500 hours total in 16 years. The other four were enlisted working on nav equipment. Enjoying retirement in the Land of Enchantment.

I was operated on at Kue Army hospital in September, 1972. Six days later was flown to Clark AFB and then after three days was loaded on a MedEvac C 141 Starlifter. I had a long leg cast on and thus rode on a gurney, 2nd from the bottom on the "rack". We refueled in Guam and again in Honolulu, and finally landed at Travis AFB where I spent the night. The next day was spent on a smaller plane and I ended up at the hospital at NAS Millington.

I recall the C 141 had racks down the middle for gurney patients, and seats that faced backward for ambulatory evacuees.

Found some old photos of a Caribbean holiday from November 1990, staying at the Jolly Beach Hotel, Antigua. Got chatting with the crew of a C-141 that had gone tech at the airport so they had to stay there for a few days until repairs were done. I recall when they departed they did a (very) low fly by along the beach in front of the hotel. Came across this site and wondered if anyone posting on here were on that crew.

I was a flight engineer with the 729 MAS and the 312 MAS always proud to fly with the starlifter and represent the USA wherever we went. I miss the good times and the 141.

The following info on the web site is not correct.
(66-0186 was the first C-141 at the Marietta museum.
It was later replaced by 65-0248 because they did not have room to display both aircraft.

I am a former pilot and a volunteer At the Marietta Museum's Aviation wing Museum. I am a tour guided. The C141B #66-0186 is still at the museum and it is the only C141 that we have. We have it open to the public and it is one of the main points of interest for our museum visitors.

65-0248 is at the Museum of Aviation, Warner Robins, GA. It was the last C-141 to go through PDM. It replaced 66-0180 which had been on display.

Rocky,
You were my pilot when we flew from Clark to Singapore in 1974- We wound up staying there for a week as we had overtemped the engines on landing. I was the FE on the trip. Remember When?

I was on the phase 2 test team for the Starlifter @ Tinker AFB (443rd). Remember LTF? Went to McGuire (438th)with the aircraft in in 67. Took a brief vacation in 68-69 to work on Herky Birds at CCK, Cam Ranh, and Don Maung 314 TAW&631st CSG). Then did almost 13 years @ Dover (436th). Was part of the CAC Team That won the Airlift Competition. Then said bye bye to the good old Starlifters and worked on C-5 the rest of the time there. Spent lot of Friday/Sat nights @ GG's. Worked part time for Clem's used cars. Raced stock cars @ Little Lincoln and Georgetown (6X).

My Father Charles Coxwell was a Tech rep for Lockheed, and the 141 and 5a were his birds. We were at Maguire, Norton, Travis, Altus and The plant before I left home. His last base was Lackland before he retired. He always had good stories to tell and really enjoyed his job. He passed away 3 years ago. Its nice to see a web site devoted to the 141.

I was at Altus,OK in the early eighties. Was lucky enough to be part of the CINC-MAC ground crew while I was there,67-0166,she flew regular training sorties, but was a pampered girl. One day, troop seats, the next a flying resort, white engines, polished leading edges, cowl rings, we hand waxed everything but the top of the wings! She stood out in a crowd. Absolutely cool memories!

(2788) My father was an engine mechanic for the three "Accelerated Flight Test Program" 141s at Travis in 1965. Some of my earliest memories are of the C-141 picture of tail #38075 my dad hung on my bedroom wall, which is one of the planes he worked on. He always spoke well of the C141. They are gone now- my dad died last year in Wichita KS.

Ron, at Dover in the late 60's we called those "LTFs" or "lead the fleet" aircraft. They had priority over everyone else and were kept in the air constantly. If I remember correctly ours were 8078 and 8079.

Greetings from Waldorf, MD (Washington DC suburb). I am a retired maintenance officer and worked C-141s at Charleston AFB 1982 - 1985. During that time, I served as Jet Shop OIC, OMS Duty Officer, and DCM Duty Officer. I've worked a different aircraft system each of my 8 assignments, finishing at Andrews AFB at the end of the Clinton Administration. I've seen many of my "old friends" retire as tired iron. Most recently, I worked and facilitated the retirement of the NASA Space Shuttles. It is bitter sweet when you have visited "old friends" on display at the AF Museum, the Reagan Library, Kennedy Space Center, California Science Center, National Air and Space Center, and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Center.

It was great finding this cite and reading some of the stories and seeing the pics. I was an FE stationed at Charleston from 87-92, with the 20th, 17th, and 41st.

was an air traffic controller at the EAF,29 Palms from 80 to 83. Personnel and
equipment were always dropped off and loaded out by 141's for the CAX. As large as they were, they were still quite nimble. We actually had one pilot do an approach numbers brake with a full load of troops aboard. Crew chief probably had to hose out the cargo bay after that.

I am a former C-141 Instructor Flight Engineer that flew out of Norton AFB, Ca. I retired in 1993 and it was a sad day for me to see the C-141 being retired. I have a lot of great memories from my Air Force days.

You have a great site and I enjoy coming to it and reflecting on the past.

I worked on C-141Bs at McGuire, Warner Robbins, and DFW airport on the lower wing plank "weep hole" inspections and subsequent wing plank replacements and splices under the "E" point. Incredible old aircraft.

I was assigned to 64-0630 as a crew chief from 1979 to 1982 as I started my Air Force career. I started in the Air Force Reserves and went direct assignment Active Duty in March 1982. The crew chief of that aircraft was WG10 Joe Edwards who was my trainer in the 315th OMS. Those were good times---I remember Chief Z---Zimmerman, Edwards, Herlihy, many others. I enjoyed it so much that I went on active duty and was assigned to C-5's at Travis. Thanks for the photos of the aircraft!
