I have been visiting C-141 Heaven for some time now just to reminisce. What I am seeing now is a phenomenal history of this Aircraft and the people who flew it and maintained it. As I look at the "blogs" I see that they now start in 2004!! My history goes back almost to the beginning. I transitioned from C-124s to the C141A in 1967 at Norton AFB. When I got there the 63rd MAW was just forming and we were all assigned to the 14th MAS but we did not have any airplanes yet. As the new crew positions arrived and went through transition training at Tinker AFB we were scheduled to pick up our new aircraft at Lockheed Marrieta, GA. I somehow got on the short list of qualified Engineers to take these missions. I must have Picked up a few dozen new aircraft. I believe 60177 was one of them as it came to Norton first as a new aircraft. I visited the Air Force museum a couple years ago just after the "Hanoi Taxi" was retired there. When I asked if they had the original documents from the acquisition the only person "Docent" I could talk to was a retired Army MSGT. He said that he did not know anything about the aircraft and that a "Docent" had not been assigned yet. I flew on "177" for the next eight years until I retired in 1974. I ended my career with over 15,000 hours in four engine aircraft, 6000+ in the C-141A. I would welcome any "Older" folks contact.

While browsing for info on a certain tail no. C-141B, I came across your site where I found what I was looking for; BUT!! what I did not expect to find is that 65-0246 was destroyed at an accident at Travis AFB. We use to fly TDY in this bird many times, though, our trips were less than usual, since some of the time in storms we would lose the NAV and COM systems under the flight deck. One night after taking off from Biggs AAF at Ft. Bliss and heading back to Travis, we hit a storm and ended up 100 miles below the Mexican border, breaking out of the clouds the navigator got a star shot and we got the heck out of there. Always remember that bird for being a strange one, because they never found any5thing wrong. Can't believe it's gone. R.I.P. 0246!

This fantastic. I spent my whole 20 years at McChord. I worked my first 4 years as a crew chief and went to Clover Park Technical School and got my A&P licenses. I also got my commercial and instrument pilots licenses. After my 4 years in maintenance I cross trained to flight engineer. I became an instructor after 2 years. I worked in the simulator 6 and a half years. When I returned to the squadron I took over training for the 4th MAS. I flew two rodeos. Yeah! Two in a row. I wrote a computer program for getting time on target to no more than 3 seconds. We even had one that was 0 seconds, but the judge argued that wasn't possible, so we ended up with one second. My wife used to tell everyone I wasn't in the air force. I played Air Force. The Air Force was the greatest career I could ever ask for. The greatest bunch of enlisted and officers I could ever hope to serve with.
Got to go to all the wars and got a few medals for stuff starting with Grenada.

Started working on A Models at CAFB 437 MAW from 78-82. Then they all became B Models. I was the Crew Chief on A/C 40644. I loved working on that airplane, although I wasn`t exactly a career man, I did my 4 and got out. Honorably of course! I have continued my A/C maintenance career since I got out. 34 yrs total A/C maint. experience, I owe it all to the USAF! and the C-141...

I have enjoyed ready the info on the wonderful aircraft I was crew chief on at Charleston AFB from 1971 until 1976. I then went to Flight Engineer school at Witchita Falls, TX and Altus, OK and had the pleasure of flying on the aircraft. I was in the 707th MAS at CAFB. Thank you all for the great memories and the trip back in time!

Just found the site, The C-141 was my first airplane out of pilot training in 1968. I was assigned to the 58MAS at Robbins AFB, GA. I believe I was the the first 1st Lt. AC in the 141.

I got send to C-130 in Dec 69, 54WRS on Guam - was never able to escape.

I had a short reunion in my last flying job at Lockheed GA. in 1980 - then I screwed up and got promoted - spend the rest of my career behind a desk in DC - retired 1987.


It was a GREAT airplane and I still miss it.

Many posters here have asked about service buddies from long ago. I stumbled on one source of information while doing some family history research on Ancestry.com. It is the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs BIRLS Death File 1850-2010. You will have to subscribe to Ancestry.com, or know someone who has. Using a friend's account I have already, and sadly, found a few of my friends from my Air Force days, 1968-1973. I was a flight line engine mechanic there from 3/69-4/71.

Hello all Airlifters.
I flew with the 14 MAS, as a Flight Engineer, out of Norton AFB CA.
1978 to 1986. I'm now residing in Fountain Inn, South Carolina, for the last 2 years. Almost retired.

I visit this site from time to time, and enjoy the comments. Enjoyed my time in the Starlifter, especially the conversations, and different personalities of the crew on those long, and sometimes boring missions.
Believe it or not, I sort of miss those airdrop missions. There was always a bit of excitement in them especially in the lead aircraft in formation drops. Take care and enjoy.

I miss the Starlifter very much. Was at McChord, Travis, Norton & McGuire. Have been tetired 12 years but have such fond memories of my days as a crew dog.

I have not been to this site since it moved to the new .info location. Nice!!

I was the Aircraft Commander of the mission where the air to air pictures of 60176 were taken with the ThunderBirds in 1976. Fond memories......

We tried out the formation work on our own a time or two and liked it enough that we called our respective commanders and got permission to do it. Once we had permission, we could take pictures so they put the team photographer in the back seat of the spare airplane. They came out nicely. I have one image on the wall (signed by all the T-Bird drivers) in my den about four feet from where I sit typing. I have never seen the side view of our beloved 141 and the T-Birds, only saw (and have the signed copy of) the overhead view.

What a great airplane! What a great experience for a twenty something kid! What a great start to a fourty year career of flying for a living!

I worked my 20 year career at McChord AFB, WA, virtually all on the C-141. I loved the C-141 and miss it dearly.

I worked all over McChord during my career.In 1981 I arrived at McChord AFB, WA, where I started in OMS in the ISO Inspection dock, then Backline, In 1987 I moved to 62d HQs as a QA Evaluator, then Chief Inspector. In 1991 I moved to the flightline where I served as Aircraft Crew Chief for aircraft 65-0277 and took it to Rodeo 92 as the Crew Chief. I also served as a shift chief, Section Chief and Production Supervisor (PRO SUPER) in the Red AMU. In 1994 I moved to MXS as the Aero Repair Shop Chief. In 1997 I moved back to the flightline, and Blue AMU, where I worked as a Pro Super, Expediter, Squadron Pro Super and then as a section Chief of the last C-141 AMU, Red AMU. In 2000 I returned to ISO/Maintenance Flight as Flight Chief, where I retired.

The McChord museum C-141 bird is my old airplane, 65-0277. I go back to visit it from time-to-time.
YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT, THE C-141 WAS THE BEST ACFT IN THE AF. I REALLY MISS THOSE DAYS WHEN I WORKED ON IT AS A MECHANIC...TRULY, THOSE WERE THE GREATEST OF DAYS!

Folks, Kevin was my roommate in the barracks at CAFB for about two years, from 78-80, we worked Bravo Branch together and lived together. Sadly, Kevin passed away last week from cancer. Anyone who knew him loved him. We lost a great man!! God Bless.

(2552) I was om the second class for the C-141 at Tinker AFB. I left the C-124 for the C-141. I was in the 75 MAS from May 1964 until October 1968. I feel that the C-141 was one of the finest aircraft that I have flown. Lets keep it alive.
