C-131 Samaritan (multiple)

Here are some photos I took Convair C-131 Samaritan examples on display at Pima, March AFB and the NMoUSAF. The NC-131H in Dayton is a very cool Total In-Flight Simulator (TIFS) vehicle extremely modified by Cornell/Calspan to train pilots for the B-1, X-40, Tacit Blue, Space Shuttle, B-2, YF-23 and C-17. A very sharp-looking example is displayed at the SD Air Museum just off base at Ellsworth AFB.
