The Douglas C-124 Globemaster II long-range transport
flew with the U.S. Air Force from 1950 to 1974. During its prime in the
1950s and 1960s, the C-124 was the Military Air Transport Service's
heavy-lift superstar. It carried all manners of oversized cargo,
including guns, tanks, trucks, and bulldozers. The two clamshell cargo
doors under the aircraft's nose took quite a beating during loading and
unloading operations. The C-124 earned the nickname "Old Shaky" because
of the shakes and tail vibrations that the aircraft generated as it
plied the airways with its belly full of cargo.
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!
