One of the tools that was used by C-5 loadmasters was a Hewlett Packard 200LX Palmtop PC. This small computer has a flip-up screen with keyboard and was used to perform aircraft weight and balance calculations.

Donor, Edward L. Renneckar, used this PC while assigned as a loadmaster to the 9th Airlift Squadron at Dover AFB, Delaware.
