The first production C-5M Super Galaxy was flown for the first time on 19 September 2010 from the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Georgia. A company flight crew made the 4.1 hour flight and cleared the necessary airworthiness test points. The aircraft, which sports the new Super Galaxy tail flash and nose art, is scheduled for formal delivery on 30 September and is expected to arrive for operations at Dover AFB, Delaware, in November.
