...and some military planes. The biggest one carried 48 paratroopers in Vietnam, and is now a flying museum.
For my dad, who will probably ask, it is a C-123 flying boxcar. The retired soldier inside said they put seats inside and the soldiers would sit until it was time to parachute out. Then they hooked themselves to cables (sort of like laundry lines hanging the length of the plane) so they could put their parachutes on standing up. When they jumped the cord would open their parachute for them.

She said there were a lot of "clocks" in there.
|That's a huge propeller, mom.|
