Lockheed C-5A Galaxy

Yes, there is currently a C-5 topic, but that’s for the boring-sounding C-5M. This is for the old boys, the C-5A (and maybe the C-5B since it’s pretty much the same plane) with their screaming TF39 engines. These could be a nice addition to the IF retro and military fleet, with not only the basic livery, but also the white 1970s livery and the green camo livery of the 1980s and 1990s.

Hello there @AvioesEJogos!
I recommend to vote for your own request. 👍


Besides that, the TF39’s engines of the A and B models made the C-5 very easily recognizable (even at high altitudes).

Out of votes: Am I a joke to you?

Also it’s my favourite-sounding engine

Not to brag or anything, but you sit upstairs and you sit BACKWARDS the force of that actually gives you body a better reaction of sleep and so the trip goes by fast.

Unfortunately this has a glass cockpit, the full analog one would be nicer…

This would be so cool to have in infinite flight. You got my vote for sure.

I was hoping that someone in the infinite flight community would put a vote out for a C-5 galaxy

Love the screams of a C5

Just here to bump this!

Personally I wouldn’t mind this replacing the C-17. Such a special aircraft!

I would love to see this aircraft be added but they should keep both not replace
C-17 but they should do a rework on it tho
