C-5 Galaxy at PDX.

C-5 Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster at PDX

Just a couple of pictures that I have taken while watching aircraft at PDX. The C-5 delivered two Pavehawk helicopters. The C-17 was here with the Thunderbirds during the Airshow.

People who said that is a c-5, you are right. Here is how you can tell the difference between a c-5 and a c-17. First of all, the wings on the c-5 bend down more than the c-17. Besides, the c-17 has winglets, the c-5 does not. I like the cargo planes

It's a C-5, and Deteminator's right. These planes are ginormous. I've walked in one, and they are huge!

It's your average soccer mom's SUV.

Wrong! It's a flying truck, like the Ford LTD.

That is a P-51. Do some research before you post!

Incredible pictures. The C-17 is huge, but look at the Fuel Tanker parked under the wing of the C-5 Galaxy. This gives you an idea how large it is. Good Job!
