The attitude of this plane just says "Move your tail or i'll move it for ya" kinda thing.
Loyd Enochs
The nickname "Fat Albert" was given for a reason :)
Stephen Bales
I always thought "Fat Albert" was the nickname of the Blue's C-130...
John Lease
the C-5 is known as "FRED"

@Loyd Fat Albert has been retired
The C-5 Galaxy is so important to the USAF, etc., that allegedly pilots are only allowed to land it with auto-pilot.
Would love to hear any verification of this.

Amazing Jet, and amazing how it can take off.
David Seider
@ John Lease: 100 thumbs up.
Just too big to fit into the picture! A beauty!

Fred it is. And the Suisun Balloon. Official Wing Commmander letter at Travis in the late 70’s told us to refer to it ONLY as the C-5A Galaxy .... ;)

“FRED” was scratched into center of some of the control yokes .... It was an interesting plane to be around and support. Supported and witnessed a max gross weight departure from Amarillo airport during a torrential downpour enroute to Tehran via a half dozen tanker appointments with choppers and drones for the Shah.

Who put the name Super Galaxy on tail?

I had a friend pilot on these (flying in Crossair CH after USAF) I think he is retired in Texas… hello Mike ...;never know..

@ a mentor. No the Blues have a new Fat Albert. The old one was retired last Summer.

yes, I noted the retirement -- but the C-5 AINT IT.

In addition to being a new aircraft the C-130J will bring greater performance to the job. The C-130J can fly up to ten percent farther than a C-130T, and carry more than fifty percent more cargo by weight.
