C-123 take-offs were remarkably short compared with other aircraft visiting or based at Bovingdon.
Used to see all of them plus the odd C54, C124 and C130 from my then home in Chesham. Departures from runway 20 would turn right towards Princes Risborough/Beacon Hill fan marker and pass straight overhead!
