The C-2 semi-trailer was built by Trailer Co. Of America for US Army Air Force, to transport aircrafts. It was normally associated to the wrecker trucks built by Bierdmann (C-2), Corbitt (54SD6), and Federal (606).
The C-2 trailer was built in two lengths: 25’ and 40’. A dolly could also be used to transform the semi-trailer in a trailer.
Our trailer was used appropriately as an “aircraft” transport, as it was used to transport the hovertrain, a train using aircraft technology.
