This is a very cool shot of the three U.S. transporters next to a China 747.

Great shot! But what is the thing on the fuselage of the C5 (next to the landing gear. Looks like a folded part.

From smaller to bigger. I wonder why is that 747 parked aside the transporters. T.B.

I like this photograph quite a bit. :) It's interesting to see the 747 and the C-5 in profile like that.

Both aircraft have a pronounced air of dignity about them. The C-130 and the C-17 are great, too.

If someone could let me pilot a 747 or a C-5, I think that that would make my entire year!

Great photo. That folding "thing" is the nose landing gear door.

That is the nose landing gear doors. C-5 nose gear doors open and folds sideways and up to give clearance between the fuselage and ground for when C-5 keels for loading/unloading through the nose cargo door.

Good shot. But, there are 4 primary transporters of the Air Force in this shot. Atlas, Polar, Evergreen, UPS, and Gemini all carry DOD cargo for the A.F. as well as those in the front. Not to mention, that the A.F. also uses a number of commercial carriers to move troops back and for through the desert, to include: World Airlines, Omni Air Int'l, Miami Air, ATA, North America, and occasionally Continental.

Its nice to see the 747 with the c-5 as the c-5 is basically an offspring of the 747... you can see alot of the similarities- specifically the nose structure... -josh
