What a BIG surprise. Thanks to Hurricane Irma we have been seeing a lot of these military birds flying in and out of the island. This is a first in history. Might be the first and last time seeing one of these here in St. Maarten.

Much as I admire the C-5, I also notice the rocks piled up on the usually sandy beach, and the palm trees stripped of absolutely every leaf. That was some hurricane!

Excellent catch Mister Bremer. Tell me, was there not already a "Galaxy" at Juliana after Luis in 95'? I got a picture depicting one of the C-17 prototype overpassing the airport and on the tarmac, but someone also told me years ago that a C-5 was present for less than a day too. Alas, and as always on our island, nearly nobody had took any picture of it (or they kept it in a box).

P.S. : the same man just answered me some minutes ago and finally wrote that the craft sent in 1995 wasn't a C-5 but an An-124. So 86-0020 clearly is the first "Galaxy" which visited us, mea culpa.
