Many people don’t realize the size of the airport on the eastern edge of Gardner. Today a C-5M Super Galaxy flew in to deliver cargo to the AirCenter. To give you an idea of the size of this aircraft, it delivered four Chinook helicopters! Chinooks aren’t small, but the C-5 is one of the largest cargo planes used by the military, capable of carrying almost 200 tons of cargo.
In this video, you’ll see that this massive airplane has room to taxi and take off with ease from this facility.
