Would this engine we can see in the hanger more likely be attached to a full size aircraft or could this just be a wing with an engine attached to it? Reason I'm asking looking at the pic of the hangar I presume we can see the port side wing of an aircraft, looking at the size of the hangar it doesn't look like there is enough room on the left side of the wing to house a full size aircraft .. Especially a c-5

Hope that makes sense

Whilst it's a nice spot, it's just the ACCA with it's engine covers on:

No it's not. That engine is much bigger than the ACCA engine, and has a larger fan section than the rest of the engine, unlike the engines on the ACCA. It's definitely NOT the ACCA, and definitely IS a C-5.

The hangar is bigger than it appears. It's capable of holding a full sized C-5.

Now that I'm on the computer and can post pictures.....

The ACCA engine:



Notice how it's all one smooth cowling, and fairly small.

The engine in question.....

Notice how it's not smooth? It's the wrong color too, but the biggest thing is that you can clearly see the ring cowl is much bigger than the body of the engine. That means that there's no way that it can be the ACCA. The only engines that even come close to fitting are the C-17 and the C-5, and the C-17 ring cowl extends back too far to fit that engine, therefore the only thing that it can be is a C-5.

Thanks for the backup on this one. IMO it is certainly not ACCA.
