Hagerstown Aviation Museum seeks funds to acquire Fairchild C-123 Provider

The Hagerstown Aviation Museum is raising funds to acquire a Fairchild C-123 Provider for it’s collection.

The C-123 will be on permanent display alongside the museum’s C-82 and C-119. This aircraft’s homecoming will mark both the fulfillment of a dream for the museum, as well as the monumental achievement of having all three aircraft together in Hagerstown, where they were built. Fairchild, with the C-82, C-119 and C-123, pioneered military cargo airplane design throughout the 1940’s and 1950’s. Many of Fairchild’s unique design features are still used in cargo aircraft produced today!

The museum’s goal is to raise $70,000 to cover the costs to return this C-123 home to Hagerstown. You are invited to join in the preservation of Hagerstown’s aviation heritage by making a donation today. You will be recognized with your name being printed in a future New Pegasus magazine and on a special donor plaque mounted inside the C-123. In addition, your donation can be in memory/honor of a person/s you would like to recognize. You will also receive a Certificate of Appreciation and an invitation to a C-123 Donors Reception. For a donation of $100 or more, you will receive a special C-123 DVD!
