ID Military Aircraft In Photo


#1

I am having trouble locking down the correct identification of this aircraft.

I thought I have it correct as a C17. A more knowledgeable associate has it as a C5A. I know it isn’t a great photograph but is anyone able to ID the plane in this picture?

Thank you!

Looks like a C17. The tail is slightly different than the C5A.

Also, the C17 has winglets, not the C5A.

C17. The wings are different than C5. Also engine hang is different than C5.

All noted and thank you very much for your responses, Dxista and W7PSK.

I thought I had matched it up properly but had my doubts after showing the picture to my friend.

Thanks, too, for the tie-breakers!
