The schedule keeps changing, so I can't say for sure, but 3 aircraft were to enter in FY10, 5002 being the 1st. Then 5 aircraft are to be inducted in FY11, but as I said, that might change. I would assume 4 more planes would be inducted this calendar year though. Actually looking back at the article, the process is still sorta there, the installation is approved for 3 aircraft, and material stuff for 5 more, so I assume their plan is still on track. Before I got out, the schedule was 1, 3, 5, 7, then 8 a year till till they are all done.
The C-5 may be a FRED, but once you learn the ins and outs of it, the C-5 Galaxy is a awesome plane!
