Video & Panoramic Tours

The Air Mobility Command Museum is proud to begin sharing guided video and panoramic tours of our aircraft. Many of you cannot visit the museum in-person, so we hope you enjoy these videos and a glimpse into our military aviation history.

Unfortunately, the museum is still closed to the public, but we are working to safely re-open, and appreciate your patience. Please continue to monitor our website and Facebook page for changes to our operating schedule.

C-119B Flying Boxcar Restoration Progress Report

The C-119B Flying Boxcar was assigned to the 314th Troop Carrier Group stationed at Ashia AB, Japan flying direct combat support missions during the Korean War. It is the second oldest C-119 in existence and it is the only surviving aircraft from the operation that air-dropped mobile bridge sections to Marines during the “Chosin Reservoir” rescue mission. The museum restoration team is currently in the process of getting the aircraft prepared for exterior painting and restoring the inside instrument configurations. The C-119 is on schedule to be painted this summer and later in the year the museum will dedicate this historic aircraft and its accomplishments to the Korean War Veterans.
