Aircraft Flown at Scott

C-121 Constellation, 1968: The C-121A was the military variant of the commercial Model 749 Constellation. Between 1948 and 1955 the USAF ordered 150 C-121As for use as cargo/passenger carriers, executive transports, and airborne early warning aircraft. As a troop carrier, they could carry a maximum of 44 passengers. Military use of the “Connie” spanned three wars: World War II, Korea and Vietnam and they were used extensively by both military and civilian airlines until the early 1960s. In addition, in 1967, an RC-121 was the first aircraft to provide Airborne Warning and Control intercept information to an Air Force fighter intercepting and shooting down a MiG over Vietnam.
