Eighty-one C-5As were produced from 1968-1973. After that, the line was shuttered. Reagan re-opened the line in 1985 to produce 50 C-5Bs and 2 C-5Cs.
Why is this considered such a big deal in the case of the C-17, if the line were shuttered?

Mind you that the 2 C-5Cs were two of the A models, 68-0213 and 8216. They were actually modified outside the production line.
