    The C-5A?

  • Description

    In the United States a Lockheed "Galaxy" C-5A aircraft has been undergoing logistics tests.

    The C-5A was designed and built as a large logistics transport for Military Airlift Command, and in this test it was loaded with three helicopters.

    The CH-47 helicopter used in the test is, in its own right, a large aircraft. It's over 50 ft long and more than 18 ft high. Designed as an all-weather medium transport helicopter, it's turbine-powered.

    The C-5A "Galaxy" accepts its load through a large hydraulic-hinged nose section, and on this occasion passed its test requirements.
