Aviation Photo #1644553 Lockheed C-5A Galaxy (L-500) - USA - Air Force

[ Medium Large ]
50 of 66
After many and many An-124 visits, we had finally an opportunity to see its American counterpart, C-5 Galaxy. The plane was unable to vacate the runway and therefore the handling operations took place on the runway threshold causing airport closure for all incoming traffic and TORA/TODA restrictons for departures.

This is a great example of how you can take something drab and boring like a C-5 and make it look incredible.

"Unable to vacate" may mean that they couldn't make the turn off the active and on to the taxiway. Too narrow perhaps? Puzzling though, that the Antonov never had any problems at Brno? You've got to wonder who was responsible for this little logistical gem??!! And we all wonder why the Europeans get annoyed with American tourists.

The night shot and all the other pieces of equipment lend to show off the size of the C-5 plus the fact my son flys these out of Wright-Patterson tends to make me very proud of him and the Air Force.
