The C-5 Galaxy is one of the world’s largest military aircraft capable of intercontinental flight. It features high wings and a T-tail. The C-5 is operated by the U.S. Air Force. Major modifications were made for the C-5C variant including the removal of the troop compartment, modifications to the rear loading doors and the installation of a new movable aft bulkhead further to the rear. As a result of these changes, the C-5C has a larger cargo area than other C-5s. Consequently it is used to provide special airlift support for NASA satellites as well as the transport of other large cargo. When it carries the Space Container Transportation System (SCTS), the C-5C frequently arrives late at night and the cargo is offloaded immediately on arrival. Such offloading operations can take about six hours to complete.

First flown on June 30, 1968, the C-5 Galaxy entered operational service with the USAF in June 1970. Between 1968 and 1989, 131 C-5s were built by Lockheed (81 C-5A and 50 C-5B). Some early model C-5s have now been retired while others have been upgraded with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend their service life. These upgraded C-5s are designated C-5M Super Galaxy.


Dragon Models offers a wide range of high quality, ready-made, diecast models. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made die-cast metal and some plastic components.

This model of a C-5 Galaxy features:

  • Detailed turbofan engines
  • Historically accurate printed markings
  • Optional extended landing gear
  • Display stand
