Five C-5M Super Galaxies have returned to flying status at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, while other C-5 bases have begun receiving serviceable parts to immediately overhaul their aircraft’s nose gears, Air Mobility Command officials said Wednesday.
“Serviceable replacement parts to fix the ball-screw drive assemblies” on the nose-gear of the largest cargo airlift plane in the Air Force’s inventory have been sent to Dover, as well as Travis Air Force Base, California, Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, and Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts, as a preventative maintenance measure, AMC spokesman Col. Chris Karns told Military.com. – Military.com
