Pack It In

August 2014

The Fairchild XC-120 Pack Plane was designed with a detachable cargo pod that was connected to the aircraft's fuselage from underneath. This design feature meant that cargo could be loaded in advance and be ready for prompt installation under the aircraft. As a result, cargo, medevac, or troop loading operations could be performed much more quickly and efficiently because there was no need to wait for the aircraft to be there. It seemed like a good idea, but only one was built.

Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!

News & Updates:
  • 3/23/14: - Due to a proof-reading error, Palm Sunday and Easter appear in both March and April in the 2014 Aerocatures™ Calendar. They are correctly shown in April 2014. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. (Sorry, there will be no refunds for extra purchases of Easter candy.)

  • 1/1/14: - UPDATE: All of the 2014 calendar orders received before the New Year have been processed and are in the mail! Thank you for all of your support in 2013! Happy New Year!
