Description

Dubbed the Flying Boxcar, the Fairchild C-119 was introduced in 1949 as a redesign of the C-82 Packet, an earlier Fairchild design that saw limited use in World War II. The C-119 was given the nickname of the Flying Boxcar thanks to its unusual appearance and good cargo capacity. Nearly 1200 were built, including 71 by Kaiser-Frazer, and later variants utilized jet engines for propulsion. The Flying Boxcars saw service in a variety of areas, including major transport duties in the Korean War and several mid-air retrieval missions of spy satellites in the early parts of the Cold War. The Boxcar was also used in Vietnam, both as a cargo plane and an aerial gunship. As the aircraft was retired out of service, it was sold to the militaries of several nations as part of the Military Assistance Program, and some civilian interests. Two of the aircraft are still operational today, flying supplies to towns in Alaska without road access. Quality construction and meticulous detailing make this model a must-have for any collector.
