The twenty-eighth C-5M Super Galaxy strategic transport was redelivered to the US Air Force in ceremonies at the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Georgia on 7 July 2015. Col. Raegan Echols, the Chief, C-5 Galaxy Division, Mobility Directorate, Life Cycle Management Center, Robins AFB, Georgia, received the delivery certificate for the aircraft prior to departure. A US Air Force crew ferried the aircraft (US Air Force serial number 86-0015) from Marietta to Stewart ANGB, New York, where it will undergo internal paint restoration. Once paint restoration is completed, the aircraft will then be flown to Travis AFB, California. It will be the tenth Super Galaxy assigned to the base near Fairfield, located about halfway between Sacramento and San Francisco.
