Just came across this video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUx5wTV4XVk ) and was wondering if anyone else has seen it before. Pretty wild take off especially for such a large bird as the C-5. Obviously the crew deemed it safe to depart (or had to depart for some reason considering it is a military jet). Just wanted to share this video. Cheers.

Saw this the other day with my father. Truly amazing! Amazing how much water the thing throws up as it rotates.

HAHAHAH!!!! Good one, oh..wait, are you serious... this IS the Military Forum, is it not?

That's the C-5M, with the upgraded engines, one reason it's so quiet!

It was a joke because of the muddy water the aircraft threw up when taking off, and the link he posted.

It was a very costly takeoff. I'll leave it at that.

EU should create a European central command and get some old C5s to refurbish, some should have a lot of life left in them, maybe a new wing and genx engines to hang on them, say 10-15 C5s to share among the larger nations, a true heavy lift capacity, should fit what ever we use here and lift about anything too, 120t iirc. A C5M sort of program.

Would US Air Force be willing to sell or give them away? I am sure a refit would be doable in Toulouse? Then use that experience to develop a new heavy lift aircraft, even US Air Force maybe a customer in the future when the C5Ms are EOLed.

Us Air Force are parking a lot in the desert now. Must be life left in some?

Reversing the object and the subject in a sentence (the "Russian reversal") has turned into an internet meme for its own sake.

They're in the desert for a reason. The USAF would refurbish them if it was attractive.

There was a proposal in the 1990's to buy a bunch of AN-124's but with western avionics and engines (RB211's apparently).
To create an organisation rather like the joint buy of C-17's or going further back, the NATO AWACS unit.

This was an idea with merit I think, not just for military missions but major relief efforts, like the 2004 tsunami.
Not that it would have any bearing on the whole C-17/A400M/C-130J debates.
Numbers were not quoted as far as I know, however to make the testing and certification of this version of the AN-124 worth it, more than the number of those NATO/EU C-17's.

The C-5 video was taken by Dutch Airmen at a base in Afghanistan last year during the spring. The base is subject to flash flooding due to it is at the base of some mountains. You can hear the F-16's that just dearmed and landed, the C-5 just started its takeoff roll when the flood water got to the runway so the water was full of garbage debris that impacted the C-5 and caused severe damage. You can see the hydraulic fluid pouring out after takeoff since the impact of water and debris ripped out the APU's and hydraulic systems in the wheel wells. It recovered at another base in the AOR that had a USAF mx base to repair far enough to fly it back home to Warner Robins for permanent repair.


I would help you but it is not in the contract

They stopped into Dover with the entire LH APU pod missing. They flew 70-0464 out of storage to KWRB to cann the APU pod off of it to repair 6025. Then they flew 70-0464 to KDMA for permanent retirement. 6025 is still at KWRB, but it is in a regularly scheduled PDM.

Why would the USA 'give' Europe an aircraft that would then be used to help EADS develop a new type of heavy lift aircraft that they would then 'sell' to the US? That's kinda like the Soviets selling us the rope that we'll hang ourselves with.
