Updated number of Aircraft in Service[edit]

79 aircraft in service as of 1 September 2012, since that point AMARC inventory records (www.amarcexperience.com) show all aircraft retired from the 164th Airlift Wing, Memphis (22 September, 2012 through 5 December, 2013); remaining aircraft from 105th Airlift Wing, Stewart (September, 2012); 1 aircraft from 433d Airlift Wing, Lackland (27 February, 2013). 167th Airlift Wing at Martinsburg is last remaining ANG C-5 unit with 11 aircraft (www.167aw.ang.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123371101)so this equates to a total of 70 aircraft in the inventory: AMC-28, AFRC-31, ANG-11 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:A:3200:392:4C2A:6CF4:2A53:2E96 (talk) 17:54, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/c5/
    Triggered by \bairforce-technology\.com\b on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

Development of "C" version missing[edit]

Dear wikipedians, in the "Development" section the text jumps from the "B" to the "M" variant, without explaining the development process of the "C" version (changes, dates, etc.). Can anyone with access to verifiable sources please help fill this gap? Thanks, DPdH (talk) 21:10, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

The C-model is specially modified and really is a one-off variant. See the C section under the Variants section for more details. -Fnlayson (talk) 23:15, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for responding. The development of C-model should be better summarized in this section, without having to jump to the "Variants" section, for ease of reading. Just an improvement suggestion, would do myself if I had access to verifiable sources. Regards, DPdH (talk) 13:25, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
  • OK, but there's not enough to warrant the tag, imo. I'll work on when I can. -Fnlayson (talk) 13:28, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
  • The text and Norton cite from the C-5C variant entry could be copied to this section and summarized (maybe 1-2 sentences). You can do this without much trouble. -Fnlayson (talk) 13:32, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. Will try to find some free time to help with editing. Regards, DPdH (talk) 20:58, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

C-class article?[edit]

I'm surprised that this article is rated C-class due to lack of citations, as it has over a hundred inline citations for nearly all the info in it (counted only 3 "citation needed" tags). Can't find when was last assessed, but to me seems that now satisfies the criteria for B-class. Can it be reassessed? Thanks, DPdH (talk) 21:07, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

That was based on the amount of article text without sources at the time, not the total number of references. It should be almost fully cited for B class, imo. The article can be reassessed at any time. -Fnlayson (talk) 22:08, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
The article is almost fully cited at this time. After reading WP:BCLASS I've reassessed the article as B class. StarryGrandma (talk) 16:35, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
