evolution of the cargo carrier, C 47 to C 5


  1. the Wright brothers first flight could be done INSIDE the cargo bay of a C-5

  2. I remember watching a programme about the Berlin Airlift, running nose to tail C47s non-stop (if you missed your landing approach you had to go all the way back to base and join the queue again). They reckoned they could have done the whole operation with about 15 C5s.
