End Of The Trail

This photo was taken by Steve Lentz at Davis-Monthan a few years ago and shows at least 4 C-7As in the line-up to be turned into scrap metal.  To the best of my knowledge (and the latest AMARC inventory list) they have now all been cut up and are gone.  Although it is not clear in this scan, the tail markings are "YK" and "PH" — anyone know what units those were?

Doug Lamerson has answered the question (actually, he answered it a long time ago and I didn't post it when I should have).  In any case, "YK" is  62-4183 (c/n 125) of the VNAF 431st Transport Sq.; formerly of 537th TAS and "PH" is  63-9739 (c/n 186) of the VNAF 429th Transport Sq.; formerly of 457th TAS.
