Example text

The lack of suitable airfields for C–119s and C–54s also limited the effectiveness of the airlift in Korea. Combat Cargo responded to this shortage by turning to airdrops, an inefficient and expensive means to deliver supplies. There was a pressing need for engineers and engineering equipment to provide more suitable terminal facilities. Tunner recognized the shortcomings of the aging C–47s, C–46s, and C–54s. Even the more modern C–119s were not without their problems. The airplanes looked like their nicknames—Flying Boxcars.

At the same time, the 315th took over aerial port responsibilities from the army, creating the 6127th Air Terminal Group. This move was squarely in line with Tunner’s belief that efficiency required a single airlift organization to control all functions at aerial ports. Finally, the lst Troop Carrier Group (Provisional) was absorbed into the 437th Troop Carrier Wing, a C–46-equipped Chicago reserve unit that had arrived in the theater in November 1950. The 1st Troop Carrier Group had accomplished a great deal since its organization in September, airlifting 27,736 passengers, 7,005 casualties, and 11,808 tons of cargo.
