On January 5, 2005, two of the McChord Air Museum's historic airlifters were moved to their final resting place to the newly named Heritage Park on McChord's runway overlook. The aircraft, the Museums Douglas C-124C Globemaster and the Lockheed-Georgia C-141B StarLifter, are the centerpiece of a more than $700,000 McChord AFB construction project modifying the hill overlooking the bases runway. The runway overlook had been a long-standing airfield obstruction for the staff of the McChord Tower, reshaping the hill alleviated the obstruction and at the same time gave the base a great opportunity to design a new park and incorporate the Museums aircraft.
