The C-46 Commando aircraft is dedicated to the members of the 1st Air Commando Wing who served with distinction in this aircraft during its years of assignment to Hurlburt Field from 1962 to 1964.

The C-46 is one of only three aircraft that served in our country's last three wars; WW II, Korea, and Southeast Asia. During the Southeast Asia conflict, the aircraft flew for Air America, the US sponsored airline of the Republic of Vietnam, the other two aircraft are on display here also, the A/B 26 and the C-47.

The C-46 last flew for the USAF in 1968 while assigned to the Air Force's Southern Command.
