CARGO AIRCRAFT: 1925-TO THE PRESENT The Story The need for a transport aircraft to carry large quantities of fuel presented a problem that a modification of the 8-24 could solve. The interesting conversion would be called the C-I 09 (the 8-24 also being modified to the C-87 earlier) and 208 of the model were bui It. Ford Motor Company accomplished all the conversions although the basic design was done by Consolidated. The planes were used mostly to carry fuel from India to China to support 8-29 operations.

The many designations reflect the many different combinations of powerplant, airframe design, and eries of design that were used by Waco. On the company models with a number as the fourth digit, that number indicates which year it was produced, 1936 to 1938. Physical characteristics: Wingspan: 34 feet, 9 inches Length: 27 feet, 10 inches Height: 8 feet, 8 inches Empty weight: 2,734 pounds Gross weight: 4,200 pounds Maximum payload: 499 pounds (up to 4 pas engers) dian C-73s eventually ended up with the British Royal Air Force.
