This plane, serial number 67-22584, was the first C-9A delivered to the Military Airlift Command in 1968 and was retired from the Air Mobility Command in August 2005 after 37 years of outstanding service. It was delivered by a crew from the 932 Airlift Wing Stationed at Scott AFB Illinois.
The C-9A, known as the Nightingale, was developed to fill the need for an Aero Medical Evacuation (Medevac) aircraft. The Air Force purchased 20 C-9As to replace older propeller driven Medevac planes.
