B-52Gs are long gone. C-5 was supposed to get the CF-6. B-52H... don't open that can of worms. You see, the USAF likes to repair TF-33s, it is a bit of a hobby to them. No need to replace them, they have enough spares to keep on repairing them till the year 3000!

I believe that the first C-5's that will be re-engined with the General Electric F103 (the military version of the CF6-50 engine) are supposed to get their upgrades starting in 2005. I think they plan to upgrade about 50 C-5's with rebuilt wings and F103 engines by 2010.
