US sends C-5 to help mini-sub

The Russian Navy got smart(er) after the Kursk mishap and decided not to wait until their sailors were obviously dead before asking for help.

Now that they've asked, the US is sending help...unfortunately it's on a C-5. If you've ever had to wait on one of these behemoths to get to (or more likely from) downrange, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I'm sure the crew dogs'll do everything humanly possible (and without the TO) to get ol' Fred in the air, but I wouldn't want to be 600 feet down and told my fate rests in the hands of a C-5.

For God's sake, don't let that thing kneel!!

P.S. Okay, they've only gotten a little smarter...
