And the captain probably says when asked what he does for a living "I fly 737's."

Do you expect Lockheed to use a C-5? I suppose a C-130 might work, but it's probably cheaper to use a 737 than to take a plane they were going to sell to do flight tests.

The only thing missing is a pair of P&W F135 motors (although the Lightning II only needs one !)...
