Global Reach Gallery

Providing airlift remains a major mission of the USAF and it forms a critical part of the Air Force’s ability to maintain global reach. The Lt. Gen. William H. Tunner Global Reach Gallery houses large aircraft in the museum’s collection, such as the C-141 Hanoi Taxi, which airlifted the first American prisoners of war to freedom from Hanoi, North Vietnam, in 1973. The Air Force’s airlift, aeromedical and evacuation missions also will be explained in this gallery. Fourth Building Gallery Overview Video.
