Douglas C-133A Cargomaster at Anchorage International

Registration: N199AB
Serial: 45164
Owner: Travis Air Museum

Saturday 30th August 2008 marked the final ever flight of a C-133 Cargomaster, with this particular example (N199AB ex 56-1999) rolling off the Douglas Aircraft on Dec. 26, 1957.

Cargomaster Inc who own this example were finding work available ever decreasing especially as they were only allowed to fly within Alaska on behalf of the government. They had been providing this service to the state for over 30 years since the aircraft was retired from the USAF.

The aircraft has been donated to the Travis Museum, one of this aircrafts former bases, and the transaction includes the two examples that have been stored at Mojave, CA for many years. These two examples are likely to be scrapped after donating parts and possibly a cockpit for use in the museum.
