Lockheed Martin C-5B Galaxy
@ San Carlos Airport, San Carlos, CA
A C-5 makes a low flyby during the 2006 Vertical Challenge helicopter airshow put on by the Hiller Aviation Museum. Once the largest aircraft in the world, the USAF has operated the C-5 since 1969 in operations all over the world. 131 aircraft are in the current fleet. The C-5M Super Galaxy is an upgraded version with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend its service life beyond 2040.
