B-17G “Flying Fortress”

Based off the Model 299 and with production beginning in 1937, the B-17 was first introduced in 1935 and was the first Boeing military aircraft with a flight deck instead of an open cockpit.

C-140 Jetstar - "Air Force One"

The C-140 is a military version of the Lockheed Model 1329 light jet transport. Production began in 1960, and although most of them were built for the civilian market, the United States Air Force (USAF) purchased sixteen of these aircraft in 1961. Eleven were assigned to the Military Airlift Command for operational support airlift and the remaining six were flown as (V)C-140Bs on special government and White House airlift missions.

SR-71 "Blackbird"

A favorite of many aviation enthusiasts, SR-71s were long-range, strategic, photo-reconnaissance aircraft that first took flight during the Vietnam War in 1964. The SR-71 is best known for its world record speeds, many of which were set without pushing its full capabilities. From 80,000 feet, these aircraft could survey 100,000 square miles of the earth’s surface per hour.

C-119G Flying Boxcar

The C-119 Flying Boxcar was manufactured to carry cargo, military personnel, hospital litter patients and drop troops and supplies by parachute into areas where aircraft could not land. The first prototype took to the air in November 1947 and was designated C-119A. Powered by two Wright R-3350 engines, the aircraft had a flight crew of four which included two pilots, one navigator/radio operator and a loadmaster for cargo or a jumpmaster for deploying troops. The aircraft could carry sixty-two, fully equipped troops or a maximum payload of 20,000 pounds.
