Douglas D-906
The Douglas D-906 was a paper project for a heavy lift transport by the Douglas Aircraft
Douglas Aircraft
Company. Douglas spent four years studying a heavy lift logistics aircraft capable of moving outsize payloads and Army units, for which no capability existed, under the CX-4 and Experimental Cargo-Heavy Logistics Support (CX-HLS) programs, which ultimately produced the C-5. The D-906 was one of them. With a shoulder wing and six 30,000 lb (13,608 kg)-thrust turbofans, it superficially resembled the Antonov An-225. Planned payload was to be 195,000 lb (88,451 kg) for up to 3,260 nmi (3,750 mi; 6,040 km), with a takeoff weight of 606,000 lb (274,877 kg). Length was to be 190 ft 8.5 in (58.13 m), span 192 ft 2.5 in (58.59 m), and wing area 4,920 sq ft (457 m2). Sources[edit]Francillon, René J. McDonnell Douglas aircraft since 1920.

Military Transport Aircraft
Military transport aircraft
Military transport aircraft
or military cargo aircraft are typically fixed wing and rotary wing cargo aircraft which are used to airlift troops, weapons and other military equipment by a variety of methods to any area of military operations around the surface of the planet, usually outside the commercial flight routes in uncontrolled airspace. Originally derived from bombers, military transport aircraft were used for delivering airborne forces during the Second World War and towing military gliders

Turbofan
The turbofan or fanjet is a type of airbreathing jet engine that is widely used in aircraft propulsion. The word "turbofan" is a portmanteau of "turbine" and "fan": the turbo portion refers to a gas turbine engine which achieves mechanical energy from combustion,[1] and the fan, a ducted fan that uses the mechanical energy from the gas turbine to accelerate air rearwards. Thus, whereas all the air taken in by a turbojet passes through the turbine (through the combustion chamber), in a turbofan some of that air bypasses the turbine. A turbofan thus can be thought of as a turbojet being used to drive a ducted fan, with both of those contributing to the thrust. The ratio of the mass-flow of air bypassing the engine core compared to the mass-flow of air passing through the core is referred to as the bypass ratio

The Antonov
Antonov
An-225 Mriya (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-225 Мрія (dream or inspiration), NATO
NATO
reporting name: "Cossack") is a strategic airlift cargo aircraft that was designed by the Antonov
Antonov
Design Bureau in the Ukrainian SSR within the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
during the 1980s. It is powered by six turbofan engines and is the heaviest aircraft ever built, with a maximum takeoff weight of 640 tonnes (710 short tons). It also has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in operational service. The single example built has the Ukrainian civil registration UR-82060. A second airframe with a slightly different configuration[1] was partially built

C-5 Galaxy
The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy
Lockheed C-5 Galaxy
is a large military transport aircraft originally designed and built by Lockheed, and now maintained and upgraded by its successor, Lockheed Martin. It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsize and oversize loads, including all air-certifiable cargo. The Galaxy has many similarities to its smaller Lockheed C-141 Starlifter
Lockheed C-141 Starlifter
predecessor, and the later Boeing
Boeing
C-17 Globemaster III. The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world. The C-5 Galaxy's development was complicated, including significant cost overruns, and Lockheed suffered significant financial difficulties. Shortly after entering service, cracks in the wings of many aircraft were discovered and the C-5 fleet was restricted in capability until corrective work was completed
