C-5 landing at Dobbins AFB, Georgia, June 1979.

Six months earlier the aircraft suffered a low pressure engine turbine failure that destroyed the left outboard engine and damaged the pylon. After landing safely, the engine was removed and the pylon temporarily faired over to reduce drag and the aircraft flown to Dobbins for repair.
