Happy #IFSIWeekendFlight

Happy #freighterfriday! @fedex sure keeps these three-holers looking spotless and new. MD-11 N591FE started life as N1758B with American Airlines in 1992. Then in 1994 it went to an airline I’d never heard of that lasted only about 7 months called USAfrica Airways, which operated it and one other leased American MD-11. It went back to @americanair in 1995 and to Fedex in 2001 and converted to a freighter. Pictures of it in its “other lives” included.

Yeaterday, I posted a few pictures of the C17 Globemaster III. But today, I have something even bigger to share. Feast your eyes on the impressively humongous Lockheed C5 Galaxy. Whereas the smaller Boeing C17 can carry a single m1 Abrams tank into battle, the Galaxy can carry two in a single flight. Just cargo hull on these bad boys is a full foot longer than the Wright Brothers original flight at kitty hawk! Above the cargo hull is a second story where there are enough seats for 75 troops, a galley for the crew, and living quarters. The Galaxy necessitates a 7 man flight crew to maintain and fly the aircraft. This plane requires 28 landing gear tires to distribute a max takeoff weight of 840,000 Lbs while providing a solid foundation when not in the air. The C5 hydraulically kneels on it’s front tire, allowing its airframe to sit just above the ground. The cargo bay then opens from the front, directly under the main cabin, providing a low angle of approach for loading and unloading of vehicles and troops. The C5 can be refueled mid flight making it capable of carrying any type of military combat vehicle to the other side of the world without even having to land. Hell, with a 220ft+ wingspan, it’s still hard to imagine this monstrosity even being airworthy. Something this big just isn’t supposed to fly, yet everyday these colossal flying machines defy the odds and take flight. Thanks to four General Electric CF6-80C2 high-bypass turbofans, the USAF can transport large amounts of military equipment to almost any battlefield in the world effortlessly. If you’ve ever wondered how helicopters, hummers, and tanks get to a battlefield, look no further...
