Ever wonder what this huge aircraft is carrying during its flights? I’ve been wondering about this question since I was in kindergarten. I know that the C-5 Galaxy is a badass military aircraft. But what can possibly fit inside it?
We finally have the answers and it’s completely mind-blowing. The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy has been utilized by the US Air Force to transport oversize cargos, humanitarian aid and disaster relief around the world.
This is what the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy looks like in flight.
This is the layout plan of the aircraft.
It can carry 122 tons on two decks. So carrying tanks is not a problem at all.
The C-5 Galaxy can carry 6 Apache helicopters.
It can carry two M1 Abrams main battle tanks that weigh 67 tons each.
It can easily swallow a big Chinook transport helicopter inside.
It can also carry one of these – an A-10 Warthog with its wings and tail detached.
Or an F-14 supersonic fighter aircraft.
A Mark 5 Special Operations boat will very much fit nicely inside.
If that isn’t enough, this monster can carry a C-130 transport aircraft.

Watch the C-5 Galaxy taking off.
The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy has the largest lift capacity of any US military transport. The Lower deck is for cargos while the upper deck has a seating capacity for 73 passengers.
