Lockheed Martin delivered the 17th C-5M Super Galaxy—the first such delivery of 2014—to the Air Force on Tuesday. The Super Galaxy took off from the company’s Marietta, Ga., facility, and flew to Stewart ANGB, N.Y., where it “will undergo internal paint restoration,” states the March 25 release. The aircraft, serial No. 86-0020, will then proceed to its final destination of Dover AFB, Del. The Air Force expects to receive 52 C-5Ms by 2017.
In a nighttime ceremony contrived to continue concealment of many of its features, the new B-21 bomber rolled out of Northrop Grumman's Palmdale, Calif. plant Dec. 2. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the aircraft's advanced technology represents "deterrence, the American way."
