C-9A Nightingale

Here's my Christmas project, a repaint of Skyline Paper Models' Douglas DC-9 into the C-9A Nightingale. This is the only aircraft designed specifically for the USAF for aeromedical evacuation. I've sent the files over to Skyline Models for publication.

Very nice repaint. I was assigned to the 375th AAW at Scott AFB in the late 80s. Put many an hour onboard the C-9.

The C-9s I flew on didn't have the MAC banner on the top of the tail. Instead, the ones I flew on had an American flag in that position. I believe the aircraft was retired in the paint scheme.

The C-9 was beautiful aircraft to fly on. Very stable...unless you hit a very powerful downdraft. I was on one flight returning to Scott AFB when the pilot announced over the intercom that there would be some very rough air ahead. Rough ain't the word for it. For a while, I was watching things float in the air. Luckily we had no patients and all the crew had strapped in.

After we landed, the pilot told me he pulled out at 1,800 feet. When I asked how high we were when he hit the downdraft, he replied, "A lot higher."

I had a lot of fun times on the Nightingale.

Nice to see the repaint. I believe FG has one also. It was done by Rob Carleen.

Ashrunner, if you pick up the C-9 from Skyline Paper Models I can send you the post 2001 tail color scheme. It's just a layer on my paint.net file so is very easy to modify. I can also change the tail number if you have a particular favorite. It looks like the C-9 had three different paint schemes in it's life with the Air Force. I've also toyed with the idea of a repaint into the C-9C VIP version if there's any interest.

Very difficult to assemble the landing gear.
