C-5 Galaxy

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy, also known as "Fat Albert" was the world's biggest transport for two decades and has hauled cargo in American military actions from Vietnam onward. Although not as large as some Ukrainian aircraft used today, the Galaxy has an unmatched service record for transporting the weapons of war. To its pilots, perched nearly 40 feet off the ground before starting engines, the Galaxy is rated as the biggest and the best.


Service History

The crash of a C-5A at Ramstein, Germany, on August 29, 1990, was the only loss of a transport plane during The massive Desert Shield airlift preparing for the Gulf War.
