- For uses of the name, Rantoul
Rantoul Engineering was an American engineering company that manufactured items such as airplane wheels. The company was based out of Chicago, Illinois.
During the 1950s, the company supplied wheels to the C-97 Stratofreighter and Boeing 377 Stratocruiser aircraft. In 1988, a wheel from the Vixen 03 was identified as coming from the company, which helped identify the aircraft by Phillip Devine, an maintenance chief working with United Airlines at Stapleton Airport in Denver, Colorado.
