  • Yeah, that should have been "130 thousand kilos" of fuel. Glad he's not the Loadmaster.

  • They make it sound like being on the runway at Balad AB is as hazardous as landing on Normandy's Omaha Beach in June '44. Get a grip.

  • Logic wants that you buy military equipment to make war and then after a while it's peace. In america they make wars to buy military equipment.

  • I remember seeing the C5A the first time back around 1970 or so. It was humongous. Standing right there in person is really the only way to get the "feel" of how large it is. I do remember that there was a lot of trouble between Lockheed and the Government about it being like a billion dollars over budget.
    It still amazes me how something so big and heavy can fly.

    • Oh yeah LOUD is right. I have flown and jumped out of them during my career. I will age myself. The first plane I jumped from was a C123. Owned by the Army, not the A.F. ha ha ha
      It was like a flying tin can. You could see between the metal on the outer covering! Then it went to 130, etc.
      The C141 was a good plane.
      Have a good one.

  • I've watched these pass a few hundred feet overhead in the marsh while crabbing in Deleware. FREAKIN' AWESOME! You can't hear them approach you, but a screaming whine from the turbines once they pass. When they are miles high in altitude they look as though they are just floating like a balloon because their size plays a mind trick on you. You are used to seeing a much smaller jet of that perceived size that is lower in altitude cruising at the same speed. The C-5 being further away looks like i More..

  • In todays times, the enemy has internet and with videos like this, its a tutorial for them. The brains these ppl have to put a video out like this is unreal. Why don't you just put a big sign on the plane? "easy target" You don't come out with video's like this that could give the enemy easy instructions about our military planes and vehicles. No brains at all!!
