The Latest C-5: The C-5M


08/19/2017: Commander of Air Mobility Command Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, returned five C-5M Super Galaxy airlifters from Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, to flying operations on Aug. 2, 2017 following repairs to the aircraft’s nose landing gear.

This follows a Dover C-5 stand-down directed by the AMC Commander July 17 after a second malfunction of the nose landing gear within a 60-day period.

Maintainers at Dover have been critical to quickly assessing and bringing about potential solutions.
