This is one of only two C-5C's in existence, modified to transport complete rocket and space station components. For this, the troop compartment was removed and the aft cargo door was enlarged. This 60th AMW aircraft from Travis AFB presents a nice view of its impressive undercarriage, as it climbs out of Los Angeles' southern-most runway. A four-wheel nose gear and four six-wheel main bogies enable the C-5 to operate from semi-prepared airfields.
