TOP 10 LARGEST MILITARY AIRPLANES - LOCKHEED C-5 GALAXY - #3

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy has served the US Air Force since it first flew in 1968. Measuring 247 feet in length, the C-5 weighs an immense 190 tons and has a wingspan that stretches for almost 223 feet.

The C-5 had what might be called a troubled development. Indeed, it was described by one aviation historian as “one of the worst-run programs, ever, in its early years.” This Lockheed giant was beset by major technical and then mechanical problems in the late 1960s and 1970s. Nevertheless, the improved C-5M Super Galaxy model was designed, which will keep the plane in service until at least 2040.

The C-5 is capable of transporting practically any kind of army equipment, including hefty items like Apache helicopters – up to six of them. It has also taken part in various conflicts, among them Vietnam and the Gulf War. What’s more, its work in the field may not be done, as there are still 36 of the airplanes operational.
