Can you “C” an “M?”

The first C-5C to be modernized as an "M" was ferried on April 28 by Major General Timothy M. Zadalis, commander, 618th Air Operations Center (Tanker Airlift Control Center), Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. The C-5M will be delivered to Travis Air Force Base, California, after a stop at Stewart Air National Guard Base, New York, where it will undergo internal paint restoration.

The new space cargo modified C-5M will be the only "M" designed to haul satellites and other large space-related cargo. With the troop compartment removed and modification to their rear loading doors, this aircraft has a larger cargo area than other C-5Ms.
