Love the title! That is just brilliant.
Hmm. Big tuna eat little tuna. Make Mongo hungry. Mongo eat now!

C-17 swallow Herky Bird. Crunchy!
What is that being ‘swallowed’ – The fuselage from what?
It’s a C-5 swallowing a stripped down C-130
Ahhh, ok. I don’t know my cargo planes that well, although, my only time in a military aircraft was a C-141 from Yokota to Misawa – and the only things I remember about that is 1)sitting facing backwards and 2)box lunch!
Todd, if you were facing backwards you were lucky. Those are the deluxe accommodations, the VIP seats as it were. The troop seats are not so luxurious, especially if they have the center row in. You face sideways and have to sort out who’s knees go in-between the knees of the guy facing you just so you can sit down. The seat is like sitting on a long nylon cot (stretched fabric over frame) with a web material back to lean on. Not the most comfortable thing after a couple hours in the air. C-130 seats are the same, but add even more noise!
