Can you imaging being a Flight Doc, Nurse or Medic and working on a C-5 Galaxy that the USAF wants to turn into a Flying Hospital

I know they have C17s equipped as flying trauma wards to evacuate critically injured troops from Iraq/Afghanistan to the major hospitals in Germany and Bethesda.

Works for me but doesn't FRED have airport limitations? Not likely us boots-on-the-ground will directly benefit as they will mostly be available in large metropolitan areas with numerous hospitals. Same applies to third world countries.
