U S Military C-9 Question

Mon Feb 18, 2013 6:24 pm

How many C-9s are still active in USAF, USN, and USMC? I think that USMC ones are still going.

I understand the VC-9s are in museums, Dover AFB museum for one. At least one Navy C-9 is still flying for NASA.

There are just 2 units still flying. 1 Navy VR-61 at NAS Whidbey Island, WA with 3-4 aircraft. 1 USMC VMR-1 at MCAS Cherry Point, NC with 2-3 aircraft. The USAF C-9A/Cs have been retired.
