Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The C5-Galaxy:
Wingspan: 222.9 feet (67.89 meters)
Length: 247.1 feet (75.3 meters)
Height: 65.1 feet (19.84 meters)

Wingspan 290 ft (88.4m),
lenght -- 84,00m,
height -- 18,10m.

Yes That C5-crash is remarkable..
On Jan 8 2004 a C5 was hit above Bagdad by a rocket:the no. 4 engine was reportedly hit by a surface-to-air missile. The crew reported excessive engine vibrations and declared an emergency. The plane returned to the airport and landed safely.
