Been checking out the two USAF Lockheed C-5 Galaxys the last couple of days and I came to see "Travis" written on the tail of each aircraft. One of the C-5s had a blue stripe with "Travis" written in that and the other had a yellow stripe. I dont know the Rego. of each aircraft but If anyone could explain what the Travis means on the tail, it would be highly appreciated.

Travis is a AFB just north of San Francisco. It's located in Fairfield, California. It's one of the biggest USAF bases in the US. I've been there several times. I have many KC-10s and C5s pics from there. It's one of the biggest KC-10s and C5s bases.

So I would assume the 2 C-5 Galaxys here are from Travis Air Force Base. Is their any significance of the different coloured stripes on the tails or is it just to do with the Wing they fly for. Are any C-5s based in Guam at all?
