Abstract:

Volume I of this report attempts to put the strategic airlift problem in perspective. The intent is to provide a basis for better understanding the complex factors that influence the program. This volume concludes that although national war contingency plans currently depend heavily on strategic airlift, the existing combined capability of the Military Airlift Command MAC and the Civil Reserve Air Fleet CRAF is inadequate to meet the strategic airlift demands of those plans and that the readiness of MAC to respond to a war emergency is being jeopardized. Each of several interrelated factors which underlie these strategic airlift deficiencies is examined.
