The largest American military transport aircraft ever built. Its first flight took place in 1968, and overall 131 machines of various modifications were produced, many of which remain in military service today. The C-5 participated in every significant military conflict from the late 20th Century onwards (the Vietnam War, Yom Kippur 1973, the first and second Iraq wars, Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan 2001 and others) and continually performed humanitarian missions in various parts of the world affected by large scale natural disasters. To this day the C-5 remains one of the largest aircraft in the world, along with the former Soviet AN-124 and AN-225, and has been the largest of all types in the US Air Force for half a century. The C-5B version was in production from 1985 to 1989, 50 built in total.
