minnflyer: Time to retire this tired old bird to the aircraft graveyard. Had 125 finds on this one in more than four years ... thanks to all who searched. :-)

Geocache Description:

I'm a certified flight instructor, so this is part of a cache series with an aviation theme. There are 8 caches in this series, hence the name. This cache is located at Brook Oaks Park in Brooklyn Park, and was approved by the BP Recreation and Parks Department.

From Hwy. 252, go west on 85th Ave. N., then north on Edinbrook Parkway N., then east on 87th Trail N. until you reach the parking circle at the park. If the playground is busy, you'll need to be stealthy to get back into the wooded area.

I saw several CITO opportunities back there, and while I got some out, you might want to bring along a trash bag or two and log your half-hour of CITO for this month!

You're searching for a camo'd quart-sized plastic peanut jar. Original contents are a First Finder's dollar, as well as a new plastic slinky and a new plush monkey toy.

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy, which first flew on June 30, 1968, held the title of world's largest airplane until the Russian Antonov design bureau introduced its An-124 and, later, the An-225. The Galaxy still flies today, and at 247 feet long and with a 270,000-pound payload, it remains the largest American transport plane. It hauls large pieces of equipment for the U.S. Air Force.
