C-9 Skytrain II,Airfix,1/144
September 9, 2016 in Aviation
Here is an Airfix DC-9 done up as a generic Navy C-9B, utilized by the navy’s logistical squadrons, On active duty me and my squadron mates racked up some frequent flyer miles on these birds going on detachments or catching the ship for deployment, as seen in the in flight shots, that’s when we wore the old dungaree uniform, and was allowed to where them when traveling on board navy A/C , mid 70’s. The very last shot is actually my last naval reserve unit a, C-9 squadron ,VR-52,in the late 90’s,Deactivated I believe as were the C-9s.
