This had to be the most unusual aircraft on static display at the 1993 Edwards AFB Open House. The oldest C-131 Samaritan operated by the USAF with the Wright-Patterson based 4950th Test Wing, she was much modified with an enlarged nose as well as much fuselage stiffening. She later became N743VS on the civil register.
