C-9 Nightingale - Bye bye birdie

YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan—A C-9 Nightingale from the 30th Airlift Squadron here took off for the final time Sept. 14 on its way to the “boneyard” at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. The Nightingale, which served as the premier medical-evacuation aircraft for the Air Force for 35 years, was retired in July. The 30th AS will deactivate Sept. 25. In 2002, the 30th AS accumulated more than 3,200 flying hours during 1,280 sorties, while airlifting more than 10,300 patients and passengers in the Pacific region.
