The Lockheed Martin Space and Air Show will feature a C-5M Super Galaxy on ground display inside the event site at Orlando Sanford International Airport on October 31 – November 1, 2020 and spectators will be able to walk though the aircraft!

 

The Lockheed Martin C-5M Super Galaxy is a the largest transport aircraft in the U.S. military and one of the largest in the world. The C-5M is a modernized version of the legacy C-5 and is operated by the U.S. Air Force. There are 52 C-5Ms in the fleet that are stationed at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware; Travis AFB, California; Lackland AFB, Texas; and Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts.

The C-5M Super Galaxy is equipped with five sets of landing gear with 28 wheels in all. It can carry oversized cargo over intercontinental ranges and can take off and land on relatively short runways. Both the nose and aft doors open, allowing ground crews to simultaneously load and off-load cargo from both ends, reducing cargo transfer times. The full-width drive-on ramps at each end enable double rows of vehicles to be transported.

 

The C-5M can carry a total cargo load of 281,001 pounds or 140 tons. It can fly 2,150 nautical miles, offload, and fly to a second base 500 nautical miles away from the original destination — all without aerial refueling. With aerial refueling, the aircraft’s range is limited only by crew endurance.
