More Photos

The C-5 Galaxy, built by Lockheed, is one of the largest military aircraft in the world. As seen in this picture, the nose lifts up and a ramp is extended to allow the loading of heavy and bulky items such as the M1 Abrams tank. Another ramp can be extended from the tail, allowing crews to load cargo from both ends at the same time. The maximum gross takeoff weight of the plane is 840,000 lbs.
