A classic beauty and the beast pic. The -60's are the beauty if you were wondering.

As far as I can tell, Fightingfalcon, those indeed are UH-60 Blackhawks.

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.

They are probably being flown that way since they are usually down for Maint.....LOL

The last Blackhawk will be slung loaded to the desert under a Huey.

With 2 Blackhawks loaded, how much more can the C5 carry? How much do the Blackhawks weigh?

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.
