USAF C-5B Galaxy

One of the world's largest aircraft and the largest aircraft in the USAF airlift fleet will be on static display at the Air Tattoo.

The C-5 Galaxy can carry a fully equipped combat-ready military unit to any point in the world on short notice and then provide the supplies required to help sustain the fighting force.

It will come from the 439th Airlift Wing based at Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver

“This is the best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
