C-124 Globemaster II Display Model

Also known as Old Shaky, the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II was a freight transport aircraft manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, California. This piston-powered cargo aircraft was first operated on November 27, 1949 and entered service in 1950 before the Korean War began. This military transport plane was similar to the C-74 but with an enlarged fuselage for carrying heavier payload. In fact, it was the only US transport capable of carrying tanks and large trucks. Its double-decked cabin could also handle 200 seats for troops or 123 litters for casualty lodging. The C-124 was in operation with the 165th Airlift Wing of the Georgia Air National Guards (ANG) until 1974.
