No prob. I totally agree. It is tough to judge size when you're a long ways away. You'll really be able to tell the difference if you ever get an opportunity to tour them.

I've toured one at an air show about 20 yrs ago with my daughter and i agree it is humongus !! I remember they told us how much cargo with army vehicles it could take at one time or it could carry 3 of the largest army tanks made all at the same time but i have never toured a C17 :( . I'm checking throught some old CDs' to see if i have any shots left of a C17 i took at our local airport back a yr or 2 ago . Saw it from a distance of about a little over 1/4 mile from the highway . It was about 10 yrs ago when i saw them both here at our local airport but i didn't have a camera at the time :( so i have nothing to show and tell for that event . But if i haven't deleted them i have picts of both a C5 and a C17 i've taken since then .

I'm rummaging through some of my old photos as well. Former Pres. Bush used to land at my airport when he would visit his ranch in Crawford, TX and a C-5 would always land in advance to deliver everything secret service and the president needed. We also were able to tour the C-5 after they had delivered their cargo. When I can find the pics I'll post them.

Love the C-47/C-17 shot, makes the C-47 look rather small.

I go to the show and pull out my camera. Looky, battery is dead. No shots. It was a good show though.

Celestron,

My father was an E7 stationed at Dover and we flew space available on the upper deck of a c5 to Mildenhall in the UK. The upper deck faces backwards so in the event of a crash you get pushed into your seat...

The Heritage Flight shot is sweeeet. Didn't even know they did heritage flights with the transports. We host the fighter certification flights here at Davis-Monthan. Anybody know where they do the certification training for the trash hauler heritage flights?
