A GALACTIC FLIGHT

August 1st, 2010

On August 25th, a US Airforce C-5M Super Galaxy will land on the Geneva Airport to pick up the AMS-02 experiment and 65 members of the AMS Collaboration. On the following day the airplane will leave to KSC where it will land on the famous Shuttle landing strip.
The C-5 M is one of the largest aircraft in the world, able to carry very heavy loads and land and leave from amazingly short strips.
If you want to know more about the C-5M Super Galaxy have a look to this impressive video.
