FS2004 Lockheed C-5A Galaxy
FS2004 Lockheed C-5A Galaxy. The largest western aircraft every built, the cavernous cargo bay on the C-5 can carry an astonishing amount of cargo of all types. While it is being eclipsed by more modern types, such as the C-17, it still remains in front line service, performing vital supply missi...

The Lockheed C-5A Galaxy is an aircraft that I always enjoy flying around but I only have one or two versions of it, and both are for newer simulators. So, when I seen that Mike Stone had taken the time to put together what looked like a very impressive take on the Lockheed C-5A Galaxy for FS2004, I was particularly intrigued!
I decided to pick it up and see what all the fuss was about, and I have to say that I was pretty damn impressed by the work that he had carried out on the aircraft. Built around the largest ever Western aircraft, this massive aircraft is capable of carrying so much! It becomes really apparent when you are onboard, though, as you can finally see that incredible scale and size come to life all around you in the most stunning fashion possible.
The attention to detail for an FS2004 model is really impressive, giving you an aircraft that is a proper piece of aviation history. It might have been superseded in real-life but it will always hold a positive place in my heart! It’s a great piece of kit and one that I would be more than happy to fly around with in the future.
I would have to say that it flies true to the real thing, if my FSX versions are anything to go by. Mike Stone has done a good job of making it look realistic and working with the limitations of FS2004 to make something that is a huge amount of fun to fly.
It gives me a really interesting take on the interior, too, which I was really impressed by. Whilst it might lack the same depth and artistic precision of its fresher brethren online, this does a great job of giving you a good idea of what the Lockheed C-5A Galaxy should be all about.
From the flashy design inside to the correct color mapping on the exterior, you can find that this take on the Lockheed C-5A Galaxy should give you plenty of inspiration about what the real thing must be like. Having compared this to my FSX editions I have to say that Mike has done such a great job on making sure those little things can stand out even in the dated engine of FS2004 – well worth your time if you want a model that looks and acts like reality.
