We all know the US Air Force has a whole range of air power to deploy, but not everybody knows about the largest plane in the
force, the C-5 Galaxy. Lockheed Martin’s C-5 Galaxy is 222 feet across, almost 300 feet long, and 65 feet tall at its tail. It’s the largest transport
aircraft in the Air Force. The cargo hull alone is 121
feet long and 19 feet across, so it’s basically a
flying warehouse that can carry just about anything
our troops might need. And I mean anything. The C-5 Galaxy’s cargo
capacity is 142 tons, the equivalent of two M1A1 Abrams Tanks, six Greyhound buses, or
25,844,746 ping-pong balls, in case you were wondering. And the nose and tail-end
both open to ease loading and unloading of
those ping-pong balls, but if ping-pong balls aren’t your thing, the cargo capacity is big enough to carry 76,216 bottles of California wine or 277,263 12-ounce cans of beer. That ought to be enough
to get you from A to B. The plan absolutely dwarfs humans, but forget humans, even Hueys
look tiny in comparison. It’s got four massive engines that each produce the force of 800 cars to help carry all of the awesome cargo that might fit in the C-5 Galaxy. Chinooks, A-10s, Fighter Jets, and even an Abrams Tank fit comfortably inside the cargo hold, but it doesn’t stop there. They can load everything from boats for the Navy to a C-130 Fuselage. Even your mom can fit inside
the hole with room to spare. Dayum! So like, share, and comment below. And if you want to play along at home, these are the dimensions
of the C-5s cargo hold. Let us know what else we can fit in them. There’s so much room for activities.
