Aircraft of the Month

The Provider was a short-range assault transport used for airlifting troops, paratroopers, litter patients, passengers, and cargo to and from small, isolated, runways. The robust C-123 became a vital part of the United States Air Force airlift during the Southeast Asia War, where it flew principally as an in-theater airlifter, gunship and a “Ranch Hand” sprayer.

C-123K S/N 55-4512 Provider “Hog Hauler” was dropped from the USAF inventory and transferred to Castle Air Museum in 1981. She was restored by museum volunteers and is presented in her Vietnam War configuration with the tail code WX, which denotes the 731st Tactical Airlift Squadron of the 901st Tactical Airlift Group. She continues to be devotedly maintained by her knowledgeable and skilled Castle Air Museum crew chief, former Captain, and USAF Vietnam War C-123 pilot, Larry McFarland.
