TOP 10 LARGEST MILITARY AIRPLANES - CONVAIR XC-99 - #4

This transport version of the Convair B-36 Peacemaker was a prototype that first flew in 1946 as a gigantic cargo carrier. The Convair XC-99 was capable of bearing over 50 tons, or 400 troops, in its 182-foot-long frame, making it the biggest land-based piston-powered transport plane of all time.

Despite the XC-99’s impressive statistics, it was decided that the US Army did not require such a massive, long-range transport plane. According to reports, high-ranking Air Force personnel were not interested in investing time and money into high-maintenance propeller aircraft. The prototype was the only example constructed, and it was mostly used to transport parts and other provisions for the B-36 bomber in the Korean War.

The lone Convair XC-99 remained in service for 11 years, until it was decommissioned in 1957. A restoration project was planned for the gargantuan aircraft, but it is thought that the large amounts of corrosion it is suffering from may make this too difficult.
