Lockheed C-141
The C-141 Starlifter was this nation’s first jet transport, designed specifically to meet military specifications as a troop and cargo carrier. The first C-141 arrived in Charleston in 1965 and the 3-1-5 shared in the operation and maintenance of this aircraft with the 437 AW from 1973 to 2000. The Starlifter has participated in numerous operations, exercises, and relief missions during that time while providing hope and comfort to millions of people globally. (USAF Photo/John Rossino)
