Description
 
Nancy R. Kingsbury (ed). Provides information on the performance of the C-141 during Operation Desert Shield/Storm, its structural problems, & planned Air Force C-141 service life extension programs. The report was compiled in 1992, when the C-141, long considered the backbone of the Air Force’s strategic airlift fleet, was at the end of its originally designed service life. Although the Air Force had planned to conserve the aircraft’s remaining useful life by flying fewer hours & limiting the weight of cargo carried, Operation Desert Shield/Storm caused the Air Force to abandon its plan. During the Operation, the C-141’s flying hours almost doubled its planned peacetime program, raising concern over accelerated wear to the aging aircraft. Charts & tables.
