When will McGuire AFB receive their first C-17s? How much longer will they be the outcasts operating ancient C-141s that are grounded 95% of the time?

In another month, McGuire will be losing two more C-141s to bring their number down from 12 to 10. The first C-17 will be here in mid-2004 while the last Starlifter will leave in 2005. I sometimes hang out in an area near the base and you can see aircraft making their approaches into McGuire and I've seen way more KC-135 and KC-10 activity than C-141 activity.
