Air Mobility Museum displays Lockheed C-60 airlifter

June 12, 2015

The Air Mobility Command Museum recently announced a new display, the Lockheed C-60 World War II-era airlifter. The C-60 is the first airlifter built by Lockheed for the Army Air Forces during World War II.

The aircraft is displayed next to the museum’s C-5, the most recent airlifter built by Lockheed. With this acquisition, the museum now presents the complete list of Lockheed airlifters built for the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force, with every one of them on display.

This one-of-a-kind display showcases the unique history of Lockheed Aircraft’s participation with the Air Force in delivering high-performance cargo aircraft from World War II to the present.

The AMC Museum is an ideal destination for the entire family. There is no admission charge. Entrance to the museum is on Route 9 just off Exit 91 from Route 1. Normal museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
