There was also a proposed C-5 Galaxy zwiling airliner

I thought the twin C-5 was proposed as an Space Suttle carrier and the C-5 Model 500 was a civil cargo C-5. But I knew nothing about C-5 airliner versions. Anybody can give confirmation?

According to Science&Vie Aviation 2005 (june 2005) it was the Lockheed L-500 for 660 passengers or more. Market studies predicted 200 aircrafts over ten years, 400 from 1980.
Don't know more...!!! They also mentionned a big douglas, the D-950 D-952 ranging from 403 to 500 seats.
These are  the A380 ancestors... Drawings are welcome!!!

Yes, it was. There are also number of other Kelly's patents that can be found by anyone at Google patent search by using exact phrase 'Clarence L Johnson' as a keyword...http://www.google.com/patents?zoom=4&num=100&q=%22CLARENCE+l.+JOHNSON%22&btnG=Search+Patents

The 1954 Lockheed design is very much the same as the CL321 submission for the KCX design competition that was won by Boeing with the KC-135/
