Air Mobility Command has 42 of its 56 C-5 cargo planes up and running after a standdown this summer.

AMC’s commander Gen. Carlton Everhart told reporters on Tuesday at the Air Force Association’s annual conference that 14 of the aircraft are in the overhaul process, with maintainers working on an expedited timeline to deem them compliant. 

Everhart ordered a fleet-wide maintenance assessment this summer after nose landing gear malfunctioned on two C-5s based out of Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
