Team Dover tests innovative drone program

Sophie Legore, Near Earth Autonomy test engineer, evaluates drone footage as it scans a C-5M Super Galaxy at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, January 23, 2024. Team Dover in cooperation with Boeing and Near Earth Autonomy tested a drone program for an autonomous C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft inspection project. Traditional inspections that require personnel to use a safety harness, maintenance stands, or vehicles can take hours to accomplish, but the drone can complete the same inspection in approximately 10 minutes.
