The Globemaster is a rapid, capacious transport. It is a Boeing aeroplane, which goes some way to expaining its resemblance to a 747 on steroids. Here you can see the large leading-edge flaps on the front of the wings, which enable it to remain stable at much lower speeds than your average large, heavy jet.
