First Time In 12 Years
Twelve years after the Lockheed C-5
Galaxy's last visit to the EAA AirVenture fly-in, the massive cargo
plane from the 439th Airlift Wing at Westover Air Force Base will
return to Oshkosh for 2004's 52nd annual event, scheduled for July
27-August 2, at Wittman Regional Airport.
Stretching as long as a football field and reaching as high as a
six-story building, the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is the largest cargo
plane in the US military. The enormous cargo compartment and
in-flight refueling capability allows the C-5 to deliver troops and
equipment of all shapes, size and purpose to any location worldwide
on short notice.
With relatively short distance take off and landing capabilities
as well as the ability to taxi on rough surfaces, the C-5 remains
invaluable to the Air Force's mission and worldwide humanitarian
The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy will be featured at AirVenture's 2004
showcase AeroShell Square, arriving on Monday, July 26 and
departing on Friday, July 30.
