Aircraft History and Specification

In 1963, the USAF began to study very large logistic jet-powered transports. After reviewing several airframe designs, they eventually choose one similar to that of the C-141A Starlifter featuring a high-set wing, four underwing jet engines and a T-tail. The design competition was between Boeing Model 747, Douglas CX-4 and Lockheed L-500. Lockheed won the contract in 1965 with a design that was an extension of the Starlifter series. Construction of the C-5 prototype began in 1966. The first C-5A Galaxy was rolled out in March 1968 and the maiden flight took place in June 1968. The C-5 entered operational service in 1970 and has been a vital asset in every military operation since that time including Vietnam, Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom. With a service life that stretches beyond 2040, the C-5 will remain a central figure in strategic airlift for decades to come. To meet that goal, the C-5 is undergoing a set of modifications that transform it into a C-5M Super Galaxy. It includes 70 enhancements or replacements of major components and subsystems, including the installation of GE CF6-80C2 commercial engines.
