I think that's up Dux's alley. I hope it's not him.

Re: C-5 Galaxy Crashes at Dover AFB.

So far they are reporting all 17 got out okay. Cool. Crash doesn't look that bad, as crashes go. Happened on take off so the speed, relatively speaking wasn't that great and neither was the altitude.

Damn that sucks to read about that. Just glad no one got killed. That plane is one big beast.

Say some prayers for them. I wasn't on board this time, but they're all friends of mine.

I can't say much about it, only that it could have been much worse.

Good to know they all got out.

Being crew and understanding the monotoney of doing drill, after drill, after drill we all know now that it plays an important roll in our lives.

Something tells me that the flameout was an indicator of a bigger problem. Bad fuel management or something.
