C-17 Globemaster At SFO

Sat Mar 19, 2005 6:48 am

Landed rwy 19 at 1:20PM & parked by the superbay. Any ideas why it's there?
(727 by the hangar look tiny as the C17 passed by)
Thanks.

Is Bush coming to SFO? Or maybe a diversion from Travis AFB?

I doubt it was a divert from Travis, as a pilot there I can tell you our last options are the Oakland or San Fran Airports. My guess is that there is a specific user that is shipping something on the plane. Oh and if you think a C17 dwarfs a 727, you should see what a C5 makes it look like!

It was in to bring in the support vehicles for Air Force 2, which came in on Saturday. Air Force 2 departed today (Monday) and another C-17 came in to move the support vehicles to the next location for the VP.

Thanks for the info Sfo212. I took a photo of Air Force 2 (tail # 001?) from Bayshore Park but it simply was too far away and there is a windsock that blocks it.
