Cliff so true, Gateway to the Air Force!

Thank you Steven!
rwb2112... you are correct!!! That's exactly how the U.S. Air Force refers to Lackland AFB!!!

If the Federal wildfire agencies were serious about stopping threatening wildfires and want to operate their own airplane the C5 should be the serious candidate.

The hungry beast waits patiently for its unsuspecting prey to come just a little closer...

Biggest aircraft I've been up close to is a C130. This looks massive!

Don't you wonder what the Wright Bros and their "crews" would think about this behemoth-- when their tiny, super lightweight craft barely got off the ground?

It would be cool to see their reaction MaryLou, but don't forget, one of the Wright Brothers actually flew on a Lockheed Constellation!

Excellent photo, reminds me of Dover AFB,DE . Cliff, Taday, Lackland is a beginning even for those that wear "green". (DLI)

Been a fan of the C5A Galaxy since the 1970's when they lost the doors over Rome in a test opening.. Always love to see them in Marietta lumbering along, circling Dobbins AFB/Lockheed.
