    The WC-121N “Draggin’ Lady,” operated by the US Navy’s Weather Reconnaissance Squadron VW-1, had a significant role during the late 1960s. These aircraft were converted from the Lockheed Super Constellation and served as weather reconnaissance platforms. The primary mission of the WC-121N was to gather meteorological data, especially in the Pacific region, to support military operations and improve overall weather forecasting.
    In 1967, during the Vietnam War, the WC-121N “Draggin’ Lady” played a crucial role in providing real-time weather information to support naval and air operations in the Pacific theater. Weather conditions were of paramount importance for planning and executing military missions, and the aircraft’s reconnaissance capabilities contributed to the safety and effectiveness of these operations. While not directly involved in armed conflicts, the WC-121N’s contributions were invaluable to military planning and decision-making during this period.
    This 1:200 scale model pays homage to this unique aircraft, capturing its distinctive features and markings of the WC-121N. Displaying this replica is a tribute to the vital role that weather reconnaissance played in military operations, especially during an era where accurate meteorological data was critical for strategic planning.
