The C-5M Super Galaxy is among the largest military aircraft in the world. How large is it? Large enough to the be the transport plane of other military aircraft.
In operation since 1969, it provides the U.S. Air Force with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsize and oversize loads, including all air-certifiable cargo. That’s huge.
In addition to be huge in size, the U.S. Air Force Super Galaxy offers a huge tactical and strategical advantage to the U.S. Armed Forces. To have the capability to bring by air all and any air-certifiable asset in the U.S. inventory as needed, is an incredible and invaluable tool.
In this video, for example, U.S. Army AH-64 Apache helicopters arrive at Ramstein Air Base in Germany and are offloaded from a C-5M Super Galaxy transport plane. Prepare to see something huuugggeee!
