The U.S. Air National Guard Plane christened the "City of Cohoes" was featured on the A&E Channel. Several years ago this plane in the 109th Airlift squadron, stationed at the Stratton Air National Guard Base in Glenville, was christened as the "City of Cohoes." Below are a couple of pictures of the plane bearing the name of the City of Cohoes.
The A&E show was part of the Search and Rescue documentary series and recounted the 1999 South Pole rescue of Dr. Jerri Nielsen, a doctor who was stricken with cancer. This rescue mission was led by the 109th Airlift Wing. The "City of Cohoes" National Guard plane took part in transporting the documentary director and crew to Antarctica for the filming.
