Hey ma, I bounced the C5 today. That was funny and it has more wheels that a barrel of monkeys has monkeys!!
A beautiful aircraft with a well done touch & go. A pleasure to see by a USAF veteran and US taxpayer. Bravo to the crew and Lockheed.

Love watching touch and go's., especially with the big transports. They look like there just floating when on approach.

For their size, it is amazing to watch them take off with a load in 3000' of runway even though there was 9000' available. What is even more amazing is not even hearing them take off when you are 1/4 of a mile away from the runway centerline.

The engines on the new M mods are louder it seems. You cannot miss them flying around after Lockheed does the modifications here at the Marietta plant.

I will always be in awe of their size since the first time I ever walked through one when I was 10.

I was lucky enough to watch a similar exercise about 25 years ago while flying a 172 just offshore. Watched a C5 downwind, base and final into Pease AFB runway 16. When he did the touch and go he was climbing out at my 3 oclock. Fantastic and exciting view.

Now that's what I call a runway. Over two miles long.

Honestly, most large international airports typically have runways 1-2000 feet longer than this one.

Back in the day it was a B-52 base and they needed every foot they could get for takeoff.

What a fantastic job and you get to fly for free.

C5s at Carswell JRB were doing touch and go's earlier this week too. At first I wasn't sure what the pilot was doing. Dang C5 is huge.

Brings back memories of my military time in the Control Tower, 1964-68.
