Warriors & Warbirds Museum Saves Vietnam Cargo Plane – Soon To Fly!
WARBIRD RADIO – Congratulations to our friends at the Warriors & Warbirds museum in Monroe, North Carolina. Warriors & Warbirds recently acquired a rare Fairchild C-123K Provider. According to a recent statement “Warriors & Warbirds is pleased to officially introduce our newest member of the fleet. The Ponderous Polly C-123K Provider.”
The Provider was first designed as an assault glider for the United States Air Force and later developed into a powered multi-role transport platform. Many C-123’s were scrapped after service in the Vietnam War due to one of their primary missions, spraying Agent Orange defoliant. Warriors & Warbirds hopes to have their C-123K back in Monroe, North Carolina for their annual air show this November.
