C-17 Globemaster Circling Low Over LA?

Wed Oct 05, 2005 7:16 am

while driving in brentwood (westside of Los Angeles) I look to my right and I see a c-17 globemaster flying extremely low and circling around. People got out of their cars and stopped what they were doing to see what was going on. Does someone have an answer to this?

There's a new wild fire, and it might be a retardant sprayer or something. Just a guess.

It's flying Combat Air Patrol over the area. Big grin
Things were better when it was two guys in a dorm room.

Not to say I definitively know the answer, but depending on the time of day (if it was between 1030 and 1100), it could have been RIV's new C-17 (P-140) that was delivered this morning. It had to do some holding for its arrival ceremony at 1115.
