History ********* The C-5A Galaxy is a heavy-cargo transport designed to provide strategic airlift for deployment and supply of combat and support forces. It can carry unusually large and heavy cargo for intercontinental ranges at jet speeds. The plane can take off and land in relatively short distances and taxi on substandard surfaces during emergency operations. Using the front and rear cargo openings, the Galaxy can be loaded and off-loaded at the same time. Both nose and rear doors open the full width and height of the cargo compartment, allowing drive-through loading and unloading of wheeled and tracked vehicles, and faster, easier loading of bulky equipment. A 'kneeling' landing gear system lowers the aircrafts cargo floor to truck-bed height. The Galaxys weight is distributed on its 28 wheel landing gear.
