I never been in one,but does anyone know if the seats in the upper tail of the C5 are forward facing?
The upper tail seats in a C5 are forward facing. If memory hasn't failed me. And the reason the seats are rear facing on the cargo floor, is because we wanted you to see where we were going to drop the seat pallets.
