The Fairchild AC-119G Shadow was a twin-engine piston-powered gunship developed by the United States during the Vietnam War.
By late 1967, the idea of the fixed-wing gunship had been proven so successful that the United States Air Force was having a difficult time keeping up with demand.
These aircraft were primarily intended to replace the AC-47 in the close air support role and were placed in the 71st Special Operations Squadron (SOW).
They were used by the SOW from 1969-1971.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen.
Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
