Fairchild UC-123B Provider: Horrible Airshow.

Fairchild UC-123B Provider: Horrible Airshow.

The Provider had a fascinating design and operational story. Its use as a spraying aircraft during the Project Ranch Hand is the most controversial and certainly not one to be proud of. During around 11 years (1961-72) Providers were used to spray the infamous Agent Orange along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.  Its side effects are still simply atrocious.
