This C-7 Caribou was flown to the Museum in 1992 and in tracing its past, it was found that the plane was stationed at Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. One of the museum's volunteers, Col. Bill Hardie, USAF Ret., researched his flight records of the time he spent at Cam Ranh Bay and found that he and the plane were old buddies.

The de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou (known in the U.S. military as CV-2 and C-7 Caribou) was a Canadian-designed and produced specialized cargo aircraft with short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. The Caribou was first flown in 1958 and although mainly retired from military operations, is still in use in small numbers as a rugged "bush" aircraft.
