The Lockheed C-141 Starlifter was unveiled in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy. The Air Force started introducing the new type beginning in 1965. From then until 2006 it served as the mainstay of the US military airlift, participating in every operation from Vietnam to Iraqi Freedom.
The Starlifter became known as the "Hanoi Taxi" in 1973 after repatriating nearly 600 American Prisoners of War held in North Vietnam.
The C-141 has several emergency escape exits located in various places along the fuselage. One of them is circled red in the picture.
