C-5 Galaxy

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.

Lockheed Martin C-5 Galaxy (WarbirdTech)

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

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.
