This boxcar is a G, the last major production model, powered with Wright R-3350 engines. 484 were built. It was used by the RCAF, as a fire bomber by Hawkins & Powers Aviation, and in the Richard Dreyfuss movie Always.

The Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar (Navy designation R4Q) was an American military transport aircraft developed from the World War II Fairchild C-82 Packet, designed to carry cargo, personnel, litter patients, and mechanized equipment, and to drop cargo and troops by parachute. The first C-119 made its initial flight in November 1947, and by the time production ceased in 1955, more than 1,100 C-119s had been built. Its cargo-hauling ability and unusual appearance earned it the nickname "Flying Boxcar".
