C-17 Globemaster III
 

The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is the newest, most flexible airlift aircraft to enter the United States and Western Air Forces. This aircraft is designed to fulfill airlift needs well into the next century - carrying large combat equipment and troops or humanitarian aid across international distances directly to small austere airfields anywhere in the world.

The C-17 is also able to perform theater airlift and airdrop missions when required.

The C-17 takes its name from two previous heavy lifter aircraft, the C-74 Globemaster and the C-124 Globemaster II.

In January 1995, the Air Force declared the first C-17 squadron operational. Since then the fleet has amassed more than 200,000 flying hours. In May 1995, the C-17 received the prestigious Collier Trophy, symbolizing the top aeronautical achievement of 1994. In 1998, eight C-17s completed the longest airdrop mission in history, flying more than 8,000 nautical miles from the United States to Central Asia, dropping troops and equipment after more than 19 hours in the air. In February 1999, President Bill Clinton presented the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for business excellence to Boeing Airlift and Tanker Programs, maker of the C-17. During normal testing, C-17s set 22 world records, including payload to altitude time-to-climb and the short takeoff and landing mark, in which the C-17 took off in less than 1,400 feet, carried a payload of 44,000 pounds to altitude, and landed in less than 1,400 feet
