Military Cargo A/C In CLE?

Sun Nov 19, 2006 5:14 am

At around 1:45 this afternoon I saw what looked like 2 large cargo aircraft flying in formation (right next to eachother). They were going west from downtown and then they made a turn towards the north-east. They looked like 2 C-5's or AN-124's but I wasn't able to get a good look. Anyone know anything about them?

Check out www.opshots.net. We've been talking about two C-130's that were at BKL.

It might have been a KC-135 getting ready to refuel something else (a C-17 or a C-5 maybe?). If what you saw were two four-engine aircraft, thet would be my sight-unseen guess.

No A nutter in good standing would ever confuse C-130's with props with C-5's or AN-124's would he?

I couldn't really see because I was driving down the street, and by the time I was able to get a good look at them, they were gone. It was quite hazy too, but I'm pretty sure it was the C-130's.

Did the planes that you saw have a T-Tail or regular tail? If it was not a T-tail than it could have been a C-130. If they had T-tails, then it could have been C-5s or C-17s.
