Seeing extensive service in Korea as both a troop and equipment transport, the C-119 earned the nickname "Flying Boxcar" for its cargo-hauling ability and unusual appearance. It was produced from 1949 to 1955, and more than 1,100 units were ultimately built. It served in the U.S. Air Force, Marines, and Navy, and was not retired until 1995.
