Lockheed Martin delivered its 14th C-5M Super Galaxy to the U.S. Air Force from its facilities in Marietta on Dec. 5.

An Air Force crew flew the Super Galaxy to Stewart Air National Guard Base, N.Y., where it will undergo internal paint restoration before traveling to its permanent home at Dover Air Force Base, Del. It is the second C-5M delivery in two weeks and the fourth for 2013.

The C-5M is the only true strategic airlifter capable of offering the entire globe in one unrefueled flight. A total of 52 Super Galaxy aircraft are scheduled to be delivered to the Air Force by 2017.
