NO idea what you are talking about Larry. Yes C-5 at Travis. Thanks Diana it is just so unbelievable how these things can fly. Hopefully when I go to Travis next I will see them fly!

In the USAF Air Transportation community it was always said, "C-5, AOJ". (AOJ = Always On Jacks)

My son is working on those at Travis. Just a beast - the sheer enormity of size.

As a retired airline pilot, and kind of an aviation enthusiast, I thank Joan for presenting the best representation of a wonderful airplane, and almost a way of life. I used to live in Smyrna, Georgia, within two miles of the factory. I never flew anything larger than a 727, but am still in awe of this airplane, and its people. Thank you Joan.

Doesn’t look like it’s on jacks, those are significant pieces of hardware in of themselves. Great photo.

C5pilotguy, yes those jacks are their own machine. Thanks for the comment and compliment!

My first sight of one of these magnificent birds was at Shemya AFB AK in 1979. The best part was it was one of the original "A" models out of Travis AFB in the original MAC white & grey colors w/the blue cheatline. I just could not get over the shear size of her, and the whine of those GE TF-39s was something you had to hear to appreciate. She had an inauspicious start when first brought into the fleet, but has since proved her mettle time and time again. Maybe if Lockheed had listened to Joe Sutter they would not have had the teething problems they did.
