Overview
 
In 1961 the Air Force purchased 16 aircraft of this type, which received the military designation C-140. Five machines were transferred to the Air Force Communication Command, the special division engaged in training of navigators and implementation of various delivery operations, and the other 11 machines came to the Military Airlift Command as auxiliary transport aircraft. Six of them were designated VC-140B and were delivered to the 89th Military Airlift Wing, a special division based at Andrews Air Force Base. Transportation of high officials including the President and Vice-president was always the principal task of the wing from its inception.
