Lockheed C-141 Starlifter

Loved by most associated personnel and enthusiasts alike, the C-141 Starlifter, quite simply, looked right and was right.
During the second half of the 1960s, it quickly became a commonplace visitor worldwide, and it was in service for more than forty years before the final examples were retired in favour of more capable airlifters. Such was its popularity that many crews left their heart aboard the silent airframe when they walked away for the last time.

Containing over 170 images, many previously unseen, and detailed information supplied by the people who flew, maintained, and supported the C-141, this book looks at the aircraft itself, as well as the organisations that flew it.
A host of names and extra markings are shown, including the graffiti briefly applied during the Rodeo competitions. Details of every unit that flew the Starlifter are also included, making it an invaluable addition to the book collections of both enthusiasts and modellers.

C-141 Starlifter: Lockheed's Cold War Strategic Airlifter (Legends of Warfare)

de (Auteur)

The Lockheed C-141 Starlifter was a new-build design by Lockheed and proved adaptable to many roles, from carrying outsized cargo to dropping paratroops. The C-141 was used in difficult environmental conditions, such as the heat and extreme humidity of Vietnam, the deserts of the Middle East, and the frozen ice pack of Antarctica. Modification programs enabled the C-141 to make full use of its capabilities, by adding in-flight refueling plus extending the length of the fuselage.

The plane was a valued and appreciated USAF asset in numerous missions, from disaster aid and humanitarian relief to doing their part in Operation Desert Shield/Storm, and in the war on terror. The aircraft were eventually retired en masse in 2006 simply as a result of wear and tear.
This book covers in detail all aspects such as interior/exterior configurations, cargo capabilities, missions, and modifications made throughout its service life.

Lockheed Martin C-5 Galaxy (WarbirdTech)

de (Auteur)

The Lockheed Martin C-5 Galaxy was designed in the mid-1960s to transport vast quantities of material to any part of the globe. The result was the largest aircraft in the world. However, it became a symbol for government excess and production was limited to just 81 machines.

Initial operations struggled with frequent breakdowns and, in an extraordinary move, the severely under-designed wing was replaced. Even more remarkable was the decision to reopen production after a decade for another 50 machines. Because of its incredible capacity and range, it remains indispensable. The decision has been made to refit the aircraft for decades more operation.

This is the remarkable story of the Galaxy's controversial birth, climb to eminence, and quarter century of service.

Lockheed C-5 Galaxy

de (Auteur)

Still the largest U.S. military aircraft more than three decades after its first flight, the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy remains an integral part of Air Mobility Command into the 21st century.
"Lockheed C-5 Galaxy" chronicles the development and service career of this behemoth of the airways, starting with the early 1960s requirement for a larger airlifter to supplement the C-141A, through Galaxy's troubled early history to the type's service during the Nickel Grass, Desert Shield, and other airlift operations.
Several Galaxy counterparts, such as the Antonov An-124, are also depicted. Over 140 photographs, nearly all in color and many never before published, show the C-5 and other airlifters in a variety of paint schemes, while detail shots will be of use to the scale modeler.

C-5 Galaxy

de (Auteur)

Die 1968 erstmals geflogene C-5 Galaxy ist ein wahrer Gigant! Bis zur Einführung der sowjetischen Antonow An-124 war sie das größte Flugzeug der Welt.
Der riesige Schulterdecker ist ein schwerer, militärischer Großraumtransporter für den strategischen Einsatz. Mit einer maximalen Reichweite von fast 13.000 Kilometern ist die in der Luft betankbare Maschine global einsetzbar und kann 130 Tonnen Nutzlast aufnehmen ? der Transport von Kampfpanzern oder Hubschraubern über interkontinentale Distanzen ist ihre Hauptaufgabe. Da ein Nachfolgemodell bisher nicht in der Entwicklung ist, soll der Riese bis 2040 im Dienst bleiben.
