The Dream Lifter only carries as many Americans as the original 747 did in 1970.

4 is definitely a crowd on the LCF. I curse those damn Boeing engineers every time I get on that loud obnoxious beast. They could of at least put a place for our luggage on the main deck.

Oh well, it pays the bills...

Looking at FlightAware, that beast gets a lot of air time......

It's an interesting plane, I bet it would be fun to load.

I always wonder how different the C-5 would have been had Boeing won the contract to build it:

If you volunteer at SnF you get free camping and free admission.....I do and have a great time. I don't think you get anything for OSH.

Heck, an L-2! I learned some flyin' in one of them. Nice and floaty for thermaling in the late morning before the big boomers start knocking you around. My dads was a civilianized machine with no greenhouse.

In case you don't know it all ready, your dad "ROCKS"........But, I'm sure you know that already.....

It was one of his conversions that sent me in this direction.

I'm personally using the Dave From Aviation parts, which reminds me, I should call him and see if the STC has been issued yet?

That was one of our first projects in A&P school. We had to build one. But that was back in the day when you didn't "buy" your license. They actually wanted you to know something (like how every carburetor/magneto ever built worked . The guy who taught it was an ex B-24 mechanic from WW II Pacific. Only thing I remember him saying was how to chill beer by hanging them under the fuel sumps when the plane landed. ) A dollar for that is awesome. Does it have a date?

No, no dates. But its definitely older (and pretty cool looking). I have been wanting one for my tool kit and damn if a dollar is not a pretty good deal for an old cool looking one!
