This photograph showed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) mobile quarantine facility (MQF), just before it was loaded on to a C-141 jet that was about to transport this unit to Atlanta, Georgia. The MQF was to be used for medical evacuations when patients needed to be treated in an airtight compartment, while being transported, in order to contain a disease agent. In 1975, a C-141 aircraft was used during the medical evacuation of the Lassa fever patient Kent Campbell, MD, MPH, from London, and transported him within the MQF to New York City.
