Abstract:

The C-5A Climatic Test evaluation program met with two major failures the forced cancellation of a tropic test and an inadequate arctic evaluation. This study analyzes the C-5A Climatic Laboratory Test program to determine how and why those subsequent failures came about. In addition, the report analyzes the relative value and need for a formal desert test, and recommends its deletion from climatic testing.
