It’s not clear if the video When this Incident happened but there is a chance that this video was shot recently or on March 15th, 2018 when a known nose gear up landing by as C-5 occurred at the base, but the latter is probably the case.
Nobody was hurt in that incident and the aircraft was deemed repairable, but it marked another in a very long line of issues with Galaxy’s troublesome landing gear which has included many emergency landings.
Regardless of the details surrounding this nose gear up landing, the crew did an amazing job of keeping the nose off the ground as long as possible and thus keeping the jet, the surrounding infrastructure and their own souls intact.
The C-5’s long history of landing gear issues includes the aircraft’s issues to rise again after its nose gear ‘kneels’ to accept cargo through the jet’s giant tilting nosecone door

In the Summer of 2017, two C-5s from Dover Air Force Base had similar issues in Rota, Spain which resulted in the grounding of the USAF’s truncated force of just 56 C-5s.
