AMARC Lockheed C-5A Galaxys

Description: Tuesday 4th November 2003 saw the arrival of the very first Lockheed C-5A Galaxy to AMARC. The crew for this delivery flight were pilot Major Dan Hasslinger, co-pilot Major John Niakaros and flight engineers MSgt Geoff Miller and TSgt Dave Seyl from the 22nd Airlift Squadron based at Travis AFB, CA. After being drained of fuel and overnighting just outside the AMARC arrival gate at Davis Monthan AFB it was towed into the base on the Wednesday. Due to the enormous weight of the C-5 one tug was not adequate enough so a second was used to provide enough horsepower to get the job done.

A number of C-5As, around 12, are reportedly to be retired from the Air Mobility Command to AMARC during 2004 and into 2005. The actual ones being retired are not known at the moment, nor is the criteria being used to select them. One suggestion is the C-5s that have had some significant structural damage during their operational life will be the first to retire. Another suggestion is that the most unreliable aircraft will be chosen, time will tell.

The first arrival, 70-0458, has quickly yielded its tail and engines. It's landing gear is also scheduled for removal very shortly. These parts and, in time, many more will be returned to the Air Force active inventory to help keep the operational C-5s in the air.
