I was working from home today - and heard a particularly loud aircraft on approach to Mather Airfield (formerly Mather AFB). Turns out we had a C-5M and KC-135 out of Travis AFB doing some touch and go landings at Mather. Grabbed the camera quick enough to snap a few pics from the yard.

And a couple more. A nice distraction from my work.

The mightiest of the mighty! Nice. You might try lightening the shadows on these. Just a suggestion.

BTW I once worked for a guy who was involved in building the very first C-5s and it was by far the biggest thing that Lockheed had ever built. So big that one of the reasons the program went way overbudget was that they hadn't factored in the time it would take to move around the aircraft and for a riveter (for example) to leave his station to get more fasteners or to change tools and return. It all adds up...


All New Year, All New Sig !
