C5 Galaxy To LAX

Fri Oct 02, 2009 9:43 pm

A couple weeks ago while cruising past the 6s along the beach I saw a large military T tail but couldn't see the whole plane.

Then as I was cruising down the 405 a Galaxy was on final to 24R (I wish I would have taken my normal route home where I stop at in n out but oh well)

Finally, today at work here in Thousand Oaks I just saw a Galaxy go over on the usual route into LAX...just curious what its doing, what her mission is and if I can expect to see more...

C-5s been coming into LAX since the 80's maybe before then. I remember them as a kid, they was so loud it was scary.

Ya I know, but the frequency is interesting me. Just curious if anyone had some insight.

It's more than likely support for Los Angeles AFB, they develop military space systems there.

Quoting BladeLWS (Reply 3):

I once saw a Lt. Col at the In N Out at LAX with 2 Majors, and then later that night I saw a C-5 depart....I presumed they were the flight crew, since they all had pilot badges.
