29th Super Galaxy delivered

Lockheed Martin delivered the 29th C-5M Super Galaxy to the US Air Force on 28 July 2015. A Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) aircrew ferried the aircraft from the Lockheed Martin facility here to Stewart Air National Guard Base, New York, where it will undergo internal paint restoration.

Once paint restoration is completed, the aircraft will then be flown to Travis Air Force Base, California, where it will be permanently based. It will be the eleventh Super Galaxy assigned to Travis.

The aircraft (84-0062) as originally delivered to the Air Force in July 1986 and has recorded approximately 21,975 flight hours over its career.
