More C-119 photos

Another forgotten Hauler from the 50's,60's and 70's.   Hope you enjoy them.

C-119 Gunships

These picture are not seen very often. As most of the time the aircraft was classified.  The AP would not greet you kindly if you snapped there picture.  Lucky for us USAF ground crew found a way.
