The Lockheed C-5A Galaxy has a reputation for being one of the largest aircraft in the world. This military transport plane was designed and built by Lockheed. Used primarily by the United States Air Force (USAF), the C-5AÕs mission is to transfer heavy cargo through airlifting. The C 5 Galaxy aircraft received much controversy because its development resulted to over a billion overrun and was put under congressional investigations from 1968 to 1969. The first fully operational C-5 model was delivered in June 1970. This aircraft was considered to transport the Space Shuttle to Kennedy Space Center, but this idea was later dropped in favor for the Boeing 747. The Lockheed C-5A is an aircraft that was first procured by the USAF.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
