A C-5M Super Galaxy piloted by Lt. Gen. Brooks Bash, Air Mobility Command vice commander, lands at Travis AFB, Calif., May 8, 2014. The aircraft is the first C-5M permanently assigned to the 60th Air Mobility Wing. According to manufacturer, Lockheed Martin, the upgrade included a modernized cockpit with a digital, all-weather flight control system and autopilot, among many other avionics-related improvements. Lockheed also states the aircraft's new engine produces "more than 50,000 pounds of thrust – a 22 percent increase over current TF39 engines – and is Stage IV noise compliant. The C-5M also has a 58 percent greater climb rate to an initial cruise altitude that is 38 percent higher than the current C-5." (U.S. Air Force photo/Ken Wright)
