This is a Northrop YC-125A Raider, USAF s/n 48-0636, c/n 2520, as now displayed at the Pima Air and Space Museum located in Tucson, AZ.

The aircraft's former FAA civil registration N2573B was cancelled on 31 December 1970; showing the owner as Arizona Airmotive Corp. of Tucson, AZ.

It is on static display as XB-GEY according to Mr. Joe Baugher's published information. Pima's website indicates the current markings to represent "Triplay y Maderas de Durango, S.A., Durango, Mexico, 1960".

There were a total of 13 examples of the YC-125A transport version built for the U.S.A.F. and 10 examples total of the YC-125B Arctic rescue version constructed also for the U.S.A.F.

One of the YC-125B Raiders is on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH.
