The C-124 Globemaster II was the ultimate piston-powered cargo aircraft and entered service in 1950, just in time for the Korean War. The C-124 used the same wing as the C-74, but the fuselage was enlarged so it could carry 10 tons more cargo. Based on lessons learned in the Berlin Airlift, the C-124 featured clamshell nose doors which allowed drive-in loading of vehicles. Until the introduction of the turboprop C-133 in 1957, the C-124 was the only US transport capable of carrying tanks and large trucks. It remained in service with the ANG until 1974 with the last ones retiring from the 165th Airlift Wing of the Georgia ANG.
