The C-5 is so massive that if you saw one flying, you would think it was going to fall out of the sky! It also has its unique look because of anhedral wings. But the C-5 fleet had its fair share of problems, and it's #NotWhatYouThink

  • Earlier in the C-5 initial development program, after Lockheed won the contract. AF determined that the wing structure was too heavy and had Lockheed performed a weight reduction study which removed "excessive" weight before starting the production run. Later on after in service wing crack issues discovered, the AF asked Lockheed to perform a wing enhancement program to extend the serviceability of the aircraft. Lockheed complied and put back those design which was removed at AF's request at the earlier time. The moral of the story: You've got what you'd paid for, twice at different time!

  • Hmm, didn't want lie to me anymore, huh. Oh just decide it's the best everyone should ever know. Look you gotta retrofit the C5 so it will make it incredibly space (outer space worthy, it's nothing but a metal enclosure, can be made airtight. Yes the C5 orbital achieving aircraft named "Worthy" picks up it's boosters, fuel isn't the only thing that can be picked up while flying. You will make orbit. Those C5s are going to be pretty handy. Along with Boeing and Lockheed Martins jumbo Jets. Oh, I thought you said you wanted to save the world or you'd be pretty good with some jumbo Jets and fighters. Pardon me please. If I can think of it, they did too. You heard it here first and is now a new invention the jato assist orbit.

  • It's not that it would have been too stable and not have enough roll maneuverability, I'm not exactly sure why you need to roll a giant plane like that but maybe to avoid being shot out of the air.

  • I flew from SoCal to Kuwait in a C5. Alot of ppl don't know but up top is passenger seating. If I remember there were about 50-75 seats. They faced backwards in ours. Below in the cargo hold was 2 folded up CH53 helicopters. So the biggest military plane was carrying 2 of the biggest Marine Corps helicopters and 50 US Marines. No windows. First we landed in Dover. Then we landed in Italy. Then KCIA. 11 months later I flew back in a C17 with a stop in Germany then a refuel over the Atlantic Ocean which was horrifically turbulent until connection then landed in So Cal. We have the best planes by far
