USAF MATS C-118 Transport

This is the type of aircraft I flew in from McGuire AFB, New Jersey to Rhein-Main Air Base, Frankfurt, Germany 8 August 1960 to 9 August 1960.

Leaving New Jersey about noon, with a mid-point refueling stop at Lajes Field, Azores, and arriving Germany the following day about noon, the total trip took about 18 hours.
