Kent Hagerman
(US Air Force Fairchild C-119, the 'Flying Boxcar'




While this is probably a military airport, Kent Hagerman still shows it at its futuristic best. Hagerman was an amazing draftsman who managed to get fantastic detail into his work. This is really a portrait of a plane -- the Fairchild C-119. The words 'United States Air Force' on the side of the plane date it to 1947 or later, after the Air Force split from the Army. The design featured the 'twin boom' clearly showing in this etching. Thanks to this feature it was called the Flying Boxcar. About 1100 were built and used until 1955. It was also used by the Chinese Air Force. Further, it may have inspired the C-120 -- the Packplane -- of which only one was built. It is signed in the plate at the lower left.
