The C-5 is so massive that if you saw one flying, you would think it was going to fall out of the sky! It also has its unique look because of anhedral wings. But the C-5 fleet had its fair share of problems, and it's #NotWhatYouThink

I often wonder things like when the problem was discovered and it’s repair was found who then was it the fault of? And how did this experience change the outcome for everyone involved? Where did the money come from? Will better designed planes result from experience or brains?

A bunch of these got parked at Davis Monthan in order to extend their life, ie, not wear them out. Every once in a while, one gets reactivated to replace another that is reaching the end of its service life.

Looks like a A225 Maria, the Russian version of this built on the cold war and is currently the largest aircraft (excluding blimps)

That's what I fly, super galaxy. Fantastic craft, started on the smaller c130f then up to the C130j got my hours up got an extra stripe and my own command, I got lucky and moved into strategic air command where the C5 and C17 live. Have many happy memories in these beasts. Flew the main base components into forward operating base Leather neck and even helped nato with camp bastion. We've carried tanks, helicopters and even porta potties. Nothing like freedom of the skies.

So cool. I remember seeing one up close at an air show when I was a kid. I could not believe how huge it really was. It was like an airplane hanger in the shape of an airplane! It was really cool!

I'm not sure the stability part of your script is correct at all. Anhedral wings when attached to the top of the aircraft will improve stability. They have to be attached to the top so the landing gear can be short.

The C5 has a payload of 270k lb, which equates to roughly 122 metric tons. That is enough to lift an M1A2 SEP tank, plus a Bradley and some capacity left to spare. It can lift two 61 ton tanks, or three 40 ton vehicles.

Earlier in the C-5 initial development program, after Lockheed won the contract. AF determined that the wing structure was too heavy and had Lockheed performed a weight reduction study which removed "excessive" weight before starting the production run. Later on after in service wing crack issues discovered, the AF asked Lockheed to perform a wing enhancement program to extend the serviceability of the aircraft. Lockheed complied and put back those design which was removed at AF's request at the earlier time. The moral of the story: You've got what you'd paid for, twice at different time!

Hmm, didn't want lie to me anymore, huh. Oh just decide it's the best everyone should ever know. Look you gotta retrofit the C5 so it will make it incredibly space (outer space worthy, it's nothing but a metal enclosure, can be made airtight. Yes the C5 orbital achieving aircraft named "Worthy" picks up it's boosters, fuel isn't the only thing that can be picked up while flying. You will make orbit. Those C5s are going to be pretty handy. Along with Boeing and Lockheed Martins jumbo Jets. Oh, I thought you said you wanted to save the world or you'd be pretty good with some jumbo Jets and fighters. Pardon me please. If I can think of it, they did too. You heard it here first and is now a new invention the jato assist orbit.

It's not that it would have been too stable and not have enough roll maneuverability, I'm not exactly sure why you need to roll a giant plane like that but maybe to avoid being shot out of the air.

I wonder why they were spraying the plane down there in that part of that one video. It didn't look like they were deicing it and were they cooling it off for whatever or washing it?

Should do the globemaster next if you haven't. One of the few aircraft that can go reverse on the ground allowing it to land on shorter runways. My county airport can have them land where normally large jets can not.

So basically: The air force bought a faulty product, then they spent billions of tax payers money to have it fixed and buy even more of em. Any ordinary person would have returned the product but the air force just doubled tripled and quadrupled down. Amazing.

These can also cary people(troops) in the top. There is a small(ish) hump on the top near the cockpit where airline seats can be situated. I have ridden from California to Baltimore in one of these. The ride is very loud but a great experience.

Maybe one of the largest bombers but it's tiny. Like the size of a Boeing 767 at the most but with a very narrow body.

I flew from SoCal to Kuwait in a C5. Alot of ppl don't know but up top is passenger seating. If I remember there were about 50-75 seats. They faced backwards in ours. Below in the cargo hold was 2 folded up CH53 helicopters. So the biggest military plane was carrying 2 of the biggest Marine Corps helicopters and 50 US Marines. No windows. First we landed in Dover. Then we landed in Italy. Then KCIA. 11 months later I flew back in a C17 with a stop in Germany then a refuel over the Atlantic Ocean which was horrifically turbulent until connection then landed in So Cal. We have the best planes by far

Used to work at a small regional airport that had a military base nearby and when I'd see one of these things land or takeoff it's incredibly humongous compared to the commercial planes we parked. Remarkable aircraft to see in person.
