XS Platinum - A Whole New Meaning to "Con Air" Photos courtesy of Matt Slade
Alaska, USA; "Iíve had Knelson Concentrators lowered to me by helicopter but never delivered by a movie star antique aircraft like this!"
Those were the words of James (Jim) Slade; Consultant to XS Platinum after witnessing "Large Marge" a 1956 Fairfield C123K Provider transport touchdown to deliver a new KC-XD40 to a placer platinum project located in Platinum, Alaska. "We were told that Large Marge was used in the 1997 film Con Air starring Nicholas Cage" added Slade.
After more than 50 years of service one can only imagine the many adventures that Large Marge has seen during her active flying career including this recent cargo drop in Platinum. At press-time we cannot confirm whether there is any truth to the rumour that "Concentrator Air" starring Jim Slade is in the works .
