Product Details


The C-5 Galaxy is a strategic airlifter type of aircraft manufactured by Lockheed-Georgia Co. Its maiden flight was on the 30th of June 1968 and was introduced commercially in 1970. Its primary user was the United States Air Force and it is still operational up to this date with 52 produced aircrafts active and 42 reserved. It is one of the largest aircrafts in the world and the largest American military transport. It was designed to carry oversized cargo. The C-5A was produced during 1968 to 1973. It was the original version of the C-5 Galaxy. In 1970s a crack on its wings was found that caused its cargo weight restriction. The C-5A was redesigned to install new strengthened wings. The new set of wings is made of an aluminum alloy that didnŐt exist during its first production.

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!
