The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy was developed with the need for a very heavy lift military transport. Being able to carry large oversized loads for the U.S. Army, navy and Marines plus huge amounts of freight, the C-5 was for many years the world’s largest aircraft. Its first flight was in March of 1968, with deliveries beginning in 1969. With its distinctive engine whine, the C-5 is able to carry loads up to 200,000 lbs and fly nonstop, with in-flight refueling, to anyplace on the globe. In 1982, the C-5 production line was again running, this time to produce a new version of the C-5. The C-5B was delivered in 1986 producing only 50 aircraft with avionics upgrades in 1998. With the re-engining of all C-5B airframes the C-5M Super Galaxy will continue to fly for many years to come.
