Is there going to be some sort of ceremony or something? I hope so, what an important aircraft the -141 was. I hope someone at least snaps a couple photos of the last takeoff and landing....

im pretty sure wright pat has a few c-141c's still flying and they should be around for at least a couple more years.

Is NASA's 141 still around? I remember seeing it long ago at Travis airshows
|Quoting MidnightMike (Reply 13):|
I had a chance to ride on the C-141 when I was travelling from Guam to Hawaii, gotta admit, it was a terrible ride. The aircraft was cold & noisy, but, looking back, kind of fun that I was able to ride in it.

It's a sad day when a plane that still can do its job well is retired to make room for a newer plane. We have tankers that are going to start having thier wings fall off in flight, but screw that, let's retire all the C141s so we can justify the C17 even more. I will miss seeing the 141s, and the troops will miss the amazing med-evac capability of the 141 as well!
