“Today marks a significant milestone for our C-5 family. While this may sound simple, this took many hours of coordination and planning from many in the C-5 enterprise,” said Greg Ulmer, vice president of the C-5 program. “This is just one step of many we are implementing to increase the rate of C-5M deliveries to our warfighters.”

Joint acceptance flights are expected to reduce total delivery time by two to four weeks. C-5M flight acceptance is the final phase of the process to deliver the aircraft back to the Air Force.
