The aircraft 0035 breaks the ribbon as the first aircraft to be modernized in the southwest bay.

The new southwest bay portion of the L-10 hangar at the Lockheed Martin facilities is the third of four bays to be opened as the program approaches the full rate production of 11 C-5Ms per year. The new equipment used for modernization greatly enhances safety, ease and speed of the work accomplished on the aircraft.

The modernization program includes more than 70 improvements to include brand-new, fuel-efficient engines. This aircraft is stationed at Dover Air Force Base, Del. and is assigned to be flown by both active duty and reserve airlift wings there.
