I had the pleasure of getting up close & personal to C17 ops once. Its amazing to see them moving around under reverse thrust - one trick the Soviets didn't have.

I'm sure they'll still be in service for the next ten years at least... :roll:

I live about ten miles from Maguire AB, in New Jersey so I get to see them low over my house all the time. Beautiful aircraft.

It'll be at least four times that.....some squadrons are just recieving new ones as we speak.......Australia's first one is still in flight trials, in California..... Look at how long the 141 was in service....
