“Sail” on a Giant C-5

Sagar Pathak

Sure the song may be trite by now, but getting a virtual ride and behind the scenes look in a giant C-5 isn’t.  The C-5 is a very capable plane that can carry 36 pallets and many, many different kinds of outsized and oversized cargo including tanks and helicopters.  Although the older C-5s suffer from many maintenance problems, there is a newer modified version called the C-5M that will soon be the Air Force’s mainstay fleet to handle that largest cargo that the Army can throw at it for years to come.

This video shows flying downrange that moves cargo in and out of the middle east.  Sit back and enjoy the ride….
