The value of airlift in the event of war and the establishment of military requirements for intercontinental air transportation are discussed. The example used relates solely to the United States Air Force. The time period selected, sometime after 1960, was chosen because of the long lead times on new transports currently under consideration for procurement by the military, because of the lead time involved in the kind of military operations commented upon, and for reasons of security.
