  Greatest payload - Lockheed Martin C-5M Super Galaxy set world record


  MARIETTA, Ga., USA -- The C-5M Super Galaxy was loaded with pallets totaling 176,450 pounds (representing only 62% of the C-5M's maximum payload capability) on September 13, 2009, when the Dover Air Force Base, Del., aircrew departed on a mission that set the new world record for the Greatest payload.

   The previous world record for the  Greatest payload was 161,023 pounds set in 1993.

   This weight exceeds the capability of any other Air Force airlifter, yet represents only 62% of the C-5Mís maximum payload capability.

   The Dover Air Force Base, Del., aircrew departed on a mission that set a total of 41 world records. This was the first of those world records.
 
   "We are very thankful for the support from the U.S. Air Force and Team Dover for making these records possible," said Lorraine Martin, Lockheed Martin C-5 program vice president. "The world record-breaking capabilities of C-5M are ensuring the warfighters receive the support they need to accomplish their mission."

    The C-5M is a modernized version of the A, B and C models of the C-5 and has redefined strategic airlift with its unique capabilities and increased reliability. It is also the most cost-effective upgrade for the taxpayer. The modernization program literally pays for itself through operational and maintenance savings.

    The C-5M's demonstrated improvements in performance and efficiency validate the tremendous value to the taxpayer in modernizing proven and viable aircraft. The C-5 can carry twice the cargo of other strategic airlift systems and is the only strategic airlifter with the capability to carry 100 percent of certified air-transportable cargo.

     The National Aeronautic Association (NAA), as the official record keeper for U.S. aviation, tracks dozens of world and national record attempts each year and annually selects the most memorable.

    Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation reported 2009 sales of $45.2 billion.
