The U.S. Air Force C-131 known as the Total-In-Flight Simulator made its final flight to the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, Nov. 7. The unusual aircraft flew some 2,500 research flights and contributed to the advancement of many of the flight technologies integral to today's fleet. Prior to its retirement, the TIFS, a 1955 Convair, was the oldest operating aircraft in the Air Force inventory.
