On January 5, 2005, two of the Museums historic
airlifters were moved to their final resting place to the newly
named Heritage Park on McChord's runway overlook. The aircraft,
the Museums Douglas C-124C Globemaster and the Lockheed-Georgia
C-141B StarLifter, are the centerpiece of a more than $700,000
McChord AFB construction project modifying the hill overlooking
the bases runway. The runway overlook had been a
long-standing airfield obstruction for the staff of the McChord
Tower, reshaping the hill alleviated the obstruction and at the
same time gave the base a great opportunity to design a new park
and incorporate the Museums aircraft.

photos of the journey of the two historic airlifters to their new
homes on Heritage Hill.
