First C-5A Arrived at Robins AFB

The first C-5 “Galaxy” transport plane arrived at Robins Air Force Base as part of a $434 contract with Robins to become the maintenance home for the Air Force’s fleet of C-5s. The contract will mean approximately 750 new civilian jobs at Robins, in addition to new military personnel. Robins was also maintenance home for the the C-130 and C-141, and the 1997 relocation of the C-5 from Kelly AFB made Robins the main airlift depot for the Air Force.
