Army RC-12 Being Prepped for Display

Army RC-12 Being Prepped for Display

A U.S. Army Chinook helicopter delivered a 14,000-pound signal intelligence aircraft from Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport to the Tobyhanna Army Depot on Wednesday.

The RC-12 Guardrail is a twin-engine turboprop aircraft based on the Beechcraft Super King Air. It is used for special missions for the Army, according to a news release. Originally stationed in Korea, where it flew multiple missions, the decommissioned aircraft will be displayed at a site still to be determined. Tobyhanna technicians perform repairs of various RC-12 electronic components.

The Boeing CH-47F Chinook is a multi-mission, heavy-lift transport helicopter. Primarily used to move troops, weapons and supplies, it also supports medical evacuation, disaster relief and search and rescue missions.
