The Largest Aircraft in the U.S. Air Force • C-5M Super Galaxy

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft originally designed and built by Lockheed, and now maintained and upgraded by its successor, Lockheed Martin. It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsized and oversized loads, including all air-certifiable cargo. The Galaxy has many similarities to its smaller Lockheed C-141 Starlifter predecessor, and the later Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world.

    And I believe we saw a C-5M super galaxy flying a training mission. It was circling, flying around in a low level pattern, and basically joy riding to the untrained eye. Lol
    It was HUGE, and truly an honor to see our military might on display. I used to work right next to runway at Lambert St Louis airport in the mid 90's Had the privilege to see and hear many military jets take off and land. F15's , F18's, c-17, I believe either a globemaster or galaxy, air force one when Bush Sr visited, and some truly awesome sites. Hindsight, I wish I would have taken pics. Fighter jets would be mocked up, taken on runway, and take off in anodized coatings. They would take off, hit afterburners, and literally disappeared straight vertical.
    Not an expert on which jets and models, but knew what some were. Thank you to our great military service men and women.
    God Bless America

  2. Did they finish getting the M mod on all the air craft? Been about 6 years since I got out and they were in the process of doing it when I got in. I remember talking about it with some of the guys in Travis. (I worked on the C-5B and the 2 C-5C models we had but we didn't have the Ms where I was, mostly Dover handled them

  3. Американские самолёты внешне и по техническим решениям, по сравнению с Советскими выглядят внешне весьма хлипко.

  4. My 4 yo son and I were lucky enough to get space a on a C-5. Cost, like 3$ each, for the bagged lunch we got, which was way better than commercial airline food. The seats were huge and it felt so safe. My son was insanely excited that there was a huge helicopter in the hold, we saw it climbing the stairs on the way in. That's really the way to travel.

  5. I live right next door to McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey we did not have c5 there but they were a hundred miles down the road at Dover they would fly over our house all the time and break some of my mom's glass ornaments we got so much trouble cuz you thought it was us
