The Lockheed C141 Starlifter was a vital member of the US Air Force. It was the first strategic jet-powered transport to land in the Antarctic and to transport US Army paratroopers during critical missions. A flexible airlift aircraft, it allowed for the hauling of large cargo and troop loads for comparatively longer distances. The C141 Starlifter performed airlifting of combat forces, resupplying them, and extracting the wounded from the battlefield with relative ease. It injected combat forces through airland or airdrop, using a rear loading ramp and paratroop doors on either side. The C141 Starlifter can also fly in low altitudes and comes in handy when there is a need to deliver equipment and supplies via the container delivery system. It is the staple aircraft for paratroopers, fulfilling a host of airlift requirements with its ability to travel long distances.
