    I grew up just south of the Lockheed plant in Marietta, Georgia where the C5As were built. When these would go for their initial flights they would take off and pass directly over our house. They were so big, every window in the house would rattle as they approached. We would run outside to watch them and they seemed to slowly crawl across the sky. As the plane would pass the noise from the engines was so strong you could feel it in your chest. I was always amazed that something that massive could stay in the sky.

    Landing gear looks mean. Has to be to carry those kinds of payloads.
