Abstract:

This report covers part of our Audit of the DoD Aircraft Paint Application and Removal Capabilities Project No. 4LB-0027. Additional issues related to the painting and paint removal for DoD aircraft will be discussed in a separate report. In March 1991, the Air Force began a program to upgrade the appearance of its air transport aircraft. As part of that program, the Air Force began repainting all its C-5 aircraft. The estimated cost of repainting the C-5 fleet of 127 aircraft was approximately 152.1 million. Quick action is needed to revise the ongoing program before additional aircraft are prematurely repainted.
