C-5 Galaxy Attending AirVenture
May 31, 2018 - A massive Lockheed Martin C-5M Super Galaxy, one of the largest military cargo aircraft in the world, will be in attendance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018, which takes place from July 23-29. The airplane will be flying in to Oshkosh at the end of the Tuesday afternoon air show and departing during the Sunday air show, giving AirVenture attendees the rare opportunity to see a C-5M in flight.
During the course of its stay at AirVenture, the C-5 will be on static display and open for tours on Boeing Plaza, with the Air Force Reserve Command showing a unique exhibit within the aircraft for visitors.
“The C-5 is celebrating its 50th year, but it’s also playing a role in the 70th anniversary of the Air Force Reserve Command,” said Maj. Christopher Vasquez, Air Force Reserve 70th year project officer. “We’re bringing out a great crew from Travis Air Force Base [in California] to become a unique exhibit, where we will host 70 years of history inside the aircraft and on the walls. You’ll be able to walk through 70 years of Air Force Reserve Command history and come out the other end into Boeing Plaza.”
