"The Kee Bird". Photo taken from Canadian Military C130 during Operation Boxtop on frozen lake north of Thule AB, Greenland. This aircraft was later made airworthy by a group of aircraft enthusiasts, but as it was taxiing on the frozen lake for its recovery flight out, the APU broke loose in the tail and caught fire, which quickly engulfed the whole fuselage and destroyed this priceless aircraft.
