The C-9A Nightingale is a modified version of the McDonnell Douglass DC-9 that is equipped with a hydraulically operated folding ramp for efficient loading and unloading of patients and medical equipment. Equally important as the US Air Force bombers, the C-9A Nightingale is the only aircraft dedicated to the transport of ambulatory and litter patients. It features an exclusive care area featuring a separate ventilation system for patients that require intensive care. A medium-range, swept-wing, twin-engine jet aircraft, the Nightingale is designed for comfort and speed; it made Medevac missions a walk in the park. To date, the C-9A Nightingale remains the only aircraft dedicated to the completion of Medevac missions, and can regularly be seen at military and commercial airfields.
