MARIETTA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has delivered the 20th C-5M Super Galaxy strategic airlifter to the US Air Force.

The airlifter was delivered 28 days ahead of the contracted schedule, Lockheed said.

A refurbished version of its predecessor the C-5 Galaxy, the C-5M Super Galaxy incorporates more than 70 changes and upgrades, including newer, quieter General Electric engines making it more reliable and 10 percent more fuel efficient than the legacy C-5s.

Lockheed is contracted to deliver a total of 52 C-5M Super Galaxies to the USAF.
