      Nice! That was in Mobile. The loadmaster was doing his walkaround and saw the chocks in the nose moving. He called the flight engineer and he see's that between the nosewheel. I think it was a 9' boa. I know that guy too. I was stationed with him in Hawaii.

      I saw that a Dreamlifter about a year ago and it really caught my eye. Biggest thing other than a C-5 that i have ever seen lumbering around the air here.

      The biggest thing I had seen take off from PDX before this was the A340 that Lufthansa sent back and forth from Frankfurt, the Dreamlifter looked crazy flying out of there!

      Apollo 11 video footage...
      "Apollo 11 - Landing on the Sea of Tranquility - July 20, 1969. 16mm landing film by Gary Neff, source footage courtesy John Knoll.
      The sequence camera was pointing out Buzz Aldrin's right-hand lunar module window. It ran at 6 frames per second for the landing and was fitted with a 10mm wide-angle lens. The clip runs approximately from 50,000 feet altitude to the lunar surface, from about 102:30:45 to 102:46:38, one minute after touchdown.
      Initially, the lunar module windows faced down towards the surface to allow Armstrong to perform visual landmark tracking. The spacecraft then rotated 180 degress to a windows-up position at an altitude of 40,000 feet to allow the landing radar to take altitude readings of the surface. The window view was of black sky during this orientation until they reached 33,500 feet when the moon slowly reappeared at the bottom of the window, just after the first 1202 program alarm announcement. Following the pitchover manoeuvre at about 7,000 feet, the moon climbed higher into view as the lunar module tilted to a more vertical position for landing.
      Surface detail became clearer below 500 feet and boulders were visible as Neil flew level looking for a clear landing site. As touchdown approached, East Crater passed 150 feet below them, the descent engine blew dust across the ground, and the shadow of the landing gear appeared. As the spacecraft dropped the last few feet, its shadow filled the camera frame, blacking out the surface. The blowing dust cleared within seconds of touchdown: this phenomenon is observable in the small slice of the surface visible in the camera frame above the lunar module shadow.
      The soundtrack includes:
      Lunar module descent engine ignition for powered descent initiation at around 46,000 feet
      Losses of voice communication and data telemetry
      Recurring computer alarms
      Landing radar dropouts
      Low fuel warning light in the lunar module
      Two verbal low fuel warnings from mission control
      Contact light announcement
      The landing announcement, and mission control's enormous relief
      The voices are mainly those of Buzz Aldrin and capcom Charlie Duke. Armstrong, Collins, and public affairs officer Douglas Ward are also heard occasionally. "
