The Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar was an American military transport aircraft, developed from the World War II-era Fairchild C-82 Packet, and designed to carry cargo and troops. The 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. The C-119 was an active performer in the Korean War, and was modified as new technologies evolved. It was replaced by the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.
