Lockheed C-5M Super Galaxy

@ Travis Air Force Base, Fairfield, CA

May 2017

Airshows at Travis are always a great opportunity to see military transport aircraft since this is the home of the 60th Air Mobility Wing, the largest in the USAF.  Here a Travis-based C-5M prepares to land after a flight demonstration during the 2017 Wings Over Solano airshow.  The C-5M Super Galaxy is an upgraded version with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend its service life beyond 2040.  Introduced in 1970, the Air Force plans to reduce the fleet to 52 C-5Ms this year.  Nikon D500 w/ Tamron 150-600 mm, processed with Aperture.
