Description of a model for analyzing three problems that confront those who plan and operate military cargo aircraft: selecting preferred fleets, routing aircraft between onload and offload points, and loading military cargo. Under certain simplifying assumptions, the model presented provides the desired synthesis of solving simultaneously the routing, loading, and aircraft selection problems. Although each problem has been studied extensively in the past, this is a first attempt to combine them all in a single framework. 48 pp.
