Today I noticed three C-17's parked at IWA in front of a remote building/hanger. Any idea why they are there? Last weekend I noticed them practicing touch and go's then a bit later that day they were lined up very close in trail (half mile) on the base leg and final approach for landing.
The airport houses several military related contractors including Boeing and L3 Communications and has regular flight activity by AZ National Guard and nearby active AF units. Also T-38s are a pretty regular sight being overhauled by vendors at IWA.
