The Plane! The Plane!

A plane as big as a C-5a Galaxy creates a stir wherever it goes. Last week in Kangerlussuaq, when the C-5 landed with 32 pallets of cargo, people turned out. With 103,000 pounds of program goods and materials in its hold, the arrival of the C-5a meant forklifts and cargo handlers were busy doing a well-practiced dance out there in the yard for a few solid hours.
