As a photographer several problems with this photo jumped right out at me. The scale and perspective are wrong. The light sources for the plane and that of the rest of the photo are different. If you enlarge the photo, you can clearly see the open door for the front landing gear, but the gear itself is missing. The C-5 is a gigantic plane, but on the ground it sits so low that a man can not walk under it. The plane in this photo appears to be sitting up very high.
