I once caught a hop from Ramstein to Dover on a C-5 in 1988. Taxiing in at Dover was an awesome sight, 30 side ny side C-5'S in a row!! Thinking about how much can be loaded into that many C-5's was amazing!! One might consider the Berlin airlift could have been accomplished in a few days with that many C-5's. Another experience with the C-5 was when they came to Tonopah Test to load up for Desert Storm, I was there and we could not believe how much stuff we could pack into those planes!! Trucks/Age Equip/Tools/spare engines/towbars/luggage/people/even spare tail pipe assys for the F-117A. It was a sight to see.
