    Default Resurrected This Bad Boy from my Backup! Lockheed Galaxy C5

    For being as large as he is, he certainly flies like a "Gentle Ben!"

    Looks great Rick!

    Nice C5 Rick. I've always liked how well those large birds fly.

    I just saw a 1 hour program about the C5 on the Smithsonian Channel and they mentioned that for every 1 hour of flight time 46 hours of maintenance was required. Lots of time and money to keep that big guy in the air!

    Thanks guy for all the nice comments. It is a marvel to see something this big fly as stable as it does!

    Larry - I can believe the part about for every 1 hour flight time, takes 46 hours of maintenance. You would probably have several teams to do maintenance: electrical, structural, mechanical, avionics, hydraulics and the list probably goes on and on and on! It is a terrifically designed aircraft, but it does come at additional costs in keeping them flying!

    Thanks - Rick
