Contractors here disassemble a C-47 Oct. 26, 2010, in order to transfer the static display aircraft to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER). This transer begans the 176th Wing's physical move to JBER, mandated by the 2005 Defense Base Realignment and Closure Act.

As of Dec. 6, 2010, five of Kulis' six display aircraft have been moved to JBER. The T-6 and P-80 are now located near the new O&T building; the F-86 is next to the pararescuers' facility; and the C-47 shown above is in front of Hangar 18. The C-123 still awaits disassembly; its new location will be to the west of the O&T building facing Airlifter Drive. Finally, the T-33 is fully assembled and secured, temporarily, on Camp Denali. A permanent location will be created in the Joint Forces Headquarters Heritage Park.
