Lockheed Martin delivers C-5M Super Galaxy
The newest C-5M Super Galaxy was ferried from the Lockheed Martin facility to the 433rd Airlift Wing, the US Air Force Reserve Command unit at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas.
The aircraft, formerly assigned to Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts, was flown to Stewart Air National Guard Base, New York, for interior paint restoration and to receive its new Texas state flag tail flash prior to final delivery. It will be the fourth C-5M assigned to Lackland.
An Air Force Reserve Command aircrew led by Brig. General James J. Fontanella, the commander of the Force Generation Center (FCG) at Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command, Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, ferried the aircraft.
