Three C-141's were used to bring the POW's from Hanoi at the end of the US involvement in the Vietnam War. All three are called "Hanoi Taxi" and one of these airplanes is with a reserve unit at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton, Ohio.
When this airplane is retired (2005?), it will become part of the collection at the Air Force Museum. This airplane is regularly displayed at airshows and for those occasions; it is decked out, in the cabin, with photos from the repatriation.
