    Dear all,

    I sent a PDF file of my Lockheed C- 5 Galaxy to Zathros for your entertainment. Have fun to free download of this giant bird.

    Happy new year 2013. sign1

    Thanks for the model Chaiwat, A long time ago, the 82d Airborne made a parachutedrop from this monster. They used the upper and lower doors for the exit and the opening shock was terrible, they were jumping static lines. If I remember right, they started to drop at 1500 feet and kept going down in elevation to about 1200 feet. The planes had to fly almost a stall for the troopers to exit the aircraft. In other words, it was gliding and dropping fast. I cannot recall any major injuries to the troopers other than a few bruises. Myself, I did not have the pleasure of that experience. I believe that they did it again but only used the lower two doors. I do not recall if they used the ramp, other than for HALO jumps.

    I assume it's in the download section but I can't find it, when I try to search for it I keep getting an error. I'll just say thanks and keep looking
