The Largest Aircraft in the US Air Force C-5M Super Galaxy in Action

WwwertyC-5M Super Galaxy military aircraft in action, the largest aircraft in the US Air Force.

The Lockheed C-5 Super Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft 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 C-5 Super Galaxy has many similarities to the smaller Lockheed C-141 Starlifter and the later Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. The C-5 Super Galaxy is among the largest military aircraft in the world.

The C-5M is a strategic transport aircraft and is the largest aircraft in the U.S. Air Force inventory. (U.S. Air Force photo by Roland Balik). 

RttytI used to weld the TF-39 engine blades hard facing at chromalloy, huge blades! The sound of those engines are a trip. The engineering involved of the construction of it to carry all that weight is incredible.
