Watch Huge C5 Cargo Jet Landing In Des Moines
A huge C5 Galaxy cargo jet landed at the Des Moines airport Tuesday to take on a load of equipment. It will be flown to Australia as members of the Iowa Air National Guard prepare for a training mission with the Royal Australian Air Force. The Iowans will be in Australia about one month. The C5 can carry 270,000 pounds of cargo. The cargo hold is large enough to hold six city buses.
