SUMMARY

Provides information on the performance of the C-141 during Operation Desert Shield/Storm, its structural problems, and 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 Force¹s strategic airlift fleet, was at the end of its originally designed service life. Although the Air Force had planned to conserve the aircraft¹s remaining useful life by flying fewer hours and limiting the weight of cargo carried, Operation Desert Shield/Storm caused the Air Force to abandon its plan. During the Operation, the C-141¹s flying hours almost doubled its planned peacetime program, raising concern over accelerated wear to the aging aircraft. Charts and tables.Kingsbury, Nancy R. is the author of 'Military Airlift : Structural Problems Did Not Hamper C-141 Success in Desert Shield/Storm', published 2005 under ISBN 9780756746872 and ISBN 0756746876.
