All 17 people on a huge military cargo plane survived a belly-landing that broke apart the C-5 Galaxy in Delaware on Monday, and some were able to walk away from the wreck. Military officials said the plane developed an undisclosed problem soon after takeoff and attempted to return to Dover Air Force Base, but it crashed in a grassy area about a half-mile short of the runway. Pilots familiar with the C-5 say its size - more than six stories high and 247 feet long - likely contributed to the fact that there were no deaths.
