C-5 Specs

Sun Apr 22, 2001 8:32 pm

Just wondering what type of engines the C-5 Galaxy uses? I was thinking the CF-6 but I have a feeling they are too small and quiet to be on the galaxy. Does anybody know?

Thanking you in advance  Big grin

they use the general electric TF-39 the grandfather of all the high bypass large fan engines. its the for-runner of the CF6 but it will soon be replaced with the CF6-80c2
