Crescent Reach is an annual exercise designed to test and evaluate Joint Base Charleston’s ability to mobilize and launch a large-scale aircraft formation in addition to train, process and deploy Airmen and cargo in response to a simulated crisis abroad.

  1. The C5-A (I think this one was a C-5M) is an amazing transport plane. I know several folks who have flown them, and they love it!

    Kudos to the airmen who pulled this off.
