C-124C Globemaster II on display at the Charleston AFB in Charleston,
South Carolina. The AFB shares space with the commercial airport,
but the display aircraft are hidden in the center of the base area.
The only possible photographic angle was with a powerful telephoto
lens from over a mile away while standing on top of the rental car
roof to get up and over a railroad track that runs along the base
perimeter. While this is not the world's greatest photo, it does
show the C-124 to be well maintained and in relatively good condition.
A better photo of this C-124C was sent to me by Steve Hiott. Below
that is an even nicer photo that was sent to me by Walt McKinney.
Mr. McKinney is a PE (Professional Engineer) who is working on a
project on base. Both photos
are used with permission. I normally only use my own photos, but in
this case, I make an exception to my rules given that I do have a
photo of the C-124 that I took myself, and that it is impossible for
me to get a better photo given the current security rules.
