USAF C-5 Galaxy circling north of Cincinnati?

USAF C5 circles 7 times
Hmm … what is going on? Over the noon hour (November 9, 2006) a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy from the USAF circled 6 or 7 times at about 1500 feet around West Chester, Ohio. Passersby looked up as they heard the jet engines whining and saw the flaps extended; it was in obvious slow flight configuration and well south of Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. It was unusual in that this was the first low, slow and large USAF C-5 in the past 10 years to slowly circle that many times in this area. I quickly snapped a few photos — any thoughts?
