I was on active duty with the 9th MAS later 9th AS from 1979 until 1992. Flew 8307 a lot of times, like all C-5s good maintenance ment good flying aircraft. Sad to see it in the Boneyard.

I remember flying on this bird many times out of Dover when I was in the Reserves (ILM with the 709th MAS). I'm not sure if this was one of the LTF (Lead The Force) birds or not like 80222 was, but it didn't seem to have any more maintenance problems than the others I flew on at Dover. The biggest headaches when I flew (74 to 82) was the IMUs and the landing gear.

I remember working on AC 307 as a Hydraulic technician. The early 1990s after Desert storm there was a rash of contaminated Hydraulic systems, I was part of the team that drained, flushed and replaced components. We accompplished this task by using a "mule" to drain and resupply the 4 systems with a new type of hydraulic fluid.

This aircraft performed outstandingly during Desert Shield/Storm;ho wever, the one thing I will always remember about 307 was the nose art it aquired while parked at the Rhein Maine Germ. ramp. A perfect rendition of Bart Simpson saying "Don't Have A Camel, Man!" This aricraft also had CDIPR issues (back then) with the airfoil constantly unseating leaving us to always keep a watchful eye on the CDIPR deploy light. C-5A 307 also had a great group of technicians keeping it FMC while assigned to the 433 AGS. They included Crew Chief Joe Bialowas, Richard Morgan, Ernie Ruiz and myself as a proud member of this ground crew. I also would like to mention that the first Dedicated Crew Chief of 68-307 was Msgt. Ben McMillan (Dover AFB DEL) who told me that his aircraft at that time was used as the "enviromental tester" which meant exposing the aircraft to extreme cold temps and than extreme hot temps causing his aircraft to constantly "leak" (cabin press).
