My god that is cool! I work around Blackhawks, and the tail seems so tall. But here, I see that they are in the bay and the tail doesn't even touch the ceiling of the 1st floor, and when you consider there is basically a full size airliner style cabin above that, well, that's just bad ass.
Let me get this straight....6 helicopters, a H'ummve, support equipment and spare parts???? 6 'friggin helicopters???? I've been in the C5 several times, and although I know the cargo area is large, I never realized it could hold that much volume. What is the weight of each of the helos?
I need not remind myself why i have a C-5 model in my room. I always wanted to fly one of those or the F-16...too bad i have 20/400 uncorrected..i have 20/17 with my contacts which is rediculous whyi cant be in the air force. Enough complaining...bed time.
Galaxy 5 you have an interesting photo there, I also have some of the loading of several MH-60G's as a C-5 was being flown to a far away place. The interest for me though is in the type helos shown. I am sure they are MH-60K's which are used by the Army Special Forces. Do you know what they are for sure?
I was a loadmaster on C-5's for 8 years. The Galaxy can indeed carry more than most people expect. Just picture this.... a C-5 has the capacity to carry 6 Greyhound buses! Although I must say, it might be pretty difficult to get the required amount of restraint on them and takeoff weight may be an issue as well.
