Tail number 7872

Recommended Posts

Bob, if you haven't heard it already, Eglin has an e model (I think, I forgot to check the air cond intakes) tail 7872 sitting over on the gun testing pad (behind the C-27) and it aint going nowhere since the winders are painted over.

Not a clue what its there for.

Thanks I had heard it was there. It was a grounded EBH aircraft. What they are going to do with it I have not heard.

Thanks again,

Bob

Are we talking about 63-7872? I was the assistant cc on her when she was at McGuire (66-67).

Last I heard she was at Peoria with the Illinois ANG. In fact one the guys there sent me a picture. Actually it was a poster featuring 7872. Sure hope they use her in a nice way!

Here's a picture of 63-7872 that was sent to me by a member of the Illinois National Guard.
