Awesome giant C-5 Galaxy near tailstrike take off at Oshkosh 2012

Nov 16 2012 - 1 Comment

Taken by Lucas Ryan last August during the 2012 EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the following picture proves that, under certain circumstances, a big cargo plane as the C-5 Galaxy, can be cool and (somehow) maneuverable, just like a fighter jet.

Even if the telephoto lens used by the photographer magnified it a little bit, the aggressive rotation of the Travis Air Force Base beast and the consequent near tailstrike on the runway were among the highlights of the USAF Galaxy’s display at Wittman Regional Airport.

    I am truly sick of ill willed people posting ” near disaster” over -normal- aggressive flying.
