Lockheed Martin delivered its 15th C-5M Super Galaxy

Lockheed Martin delivered its 15th C-5M Super Galaxy to the U.S. Air Force from its facilities here today.

Air Force crews flew the Super Galaxy to Dover Air Force Base, Del. It is the third C-5M delivery in less than a month and the fifth for 2013.

The Super Galaxy is the standard for strategic airlift and exceeds a mission capable rate of 80 percent.

I caught this transfer on my Mode-S box on the 13th. The aircraft details follow:
AE0581 87-0036  2013-12-13 19:55:11 C-5M USAF | 436AW | 9AS [KDOV]
