Delaware lawmakers are advocating an end to C-17 production—Dover Air Force Base got its full complement last fall—and continuation of the C-5M Super Galaxy upgrade program. Dover has two developmental C-5Ms, one of which just flew a multi-record setting flight, and expects to have its B models upgraded to C-5M as part of the plan to modernize 52 C-5s by 2016. Here, Team Dover's first C-5M Super Galaxy, the Spirit of Global Reach, lands at Dover Feb. 9, 2009.
