It's wonderful to climb the liquid mountains of the sky, Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears.
— Helen Keller, at age 74, on flight around the world, news reports of 5 February 1955
I saw my first one just last weekend I was at my airport washing my plane when a rare U.S.A.F. CN-235 landed. It only stayed a few minutes. The Air Force only has a very few and most of these are stationed at Seymour Johnson in North Carolina and are assigned to the Special Ops group. So who knows what they actually do. Anyway I got a great look at a really neat plane. But no photos cause I forgot my camera. Oh well.
I didn't realise that the USAF had any of these aircraft. Thanks for the info.
I forgot to include the s/n id of the aircraft I saw. It a CN-235 was 66049 And I believe it to be with the USAF 427th Special Operations Squadron. Rumors have that as a " Delta Force type Unit"
