I am going and I would kill for a cockpit tour of a C-5.I've been in several C-5's but never in the cockpit.I was also at the Millville,NJ show a few weeks ago.Was that your C-5 that did the fly-by there?

Did I mention that I would kill for the C-5 tour  Big grin

Galaxy5, you're a good person for doing this. Unfortunately, our show was cancelled here this year due to commitments.

Rock on, "T"-tails!

Hiya.
I was there on Saturday.When I got to the C-5 it was very crowded so I figured I would come back later.I went back after the Thunderbirds but it looked like they were closing things up.I saw 2 of the crew,1 was named Walter and the other was named Paul.Was one of them you?

Scott?

Well Im back from it..the line to go up the Galaxy was about 30 minutes but I waited because it was unique as I had never done that before, also went inside the C-21, and the KC-135 (went to the boom op station there, that was really cool), and meandered around the rest of the statics until the flying part was to begin, then watched all of that, the Cub landing on the truck was simply awesome as was the F-15 flying formation with the F-86...

Galaxy,
What time did your sortie land today? I saw a number of C-5 movements, just wondering which one was yours????

Galaxy5:
Do you do only the Dover Air Show, or others, too? I was wondering if your aircraft would be visiting Quonset Point RI on June 29 and 30. Thanks.

Matt
