Fifth Raaf C-17

Thu May 31, 2007 8:52 pm

I read an articile recently on the prospects of Boeing building the BC-17 for civil markets and in the article it was mentioned that Boeing believes that there are prospects for a fifth RAAF C-17. Has anybody any further news?

Hope so!  Smile The RNZAF should make a deal with the RAAF to have one operated on their behalf too.

I can't see the money in the current budget for it. It is does arrive it will be by way of special purchase as the previous 4 were. Would be useful to have though, especially with our commitment to Afghanistan expected to last a further two years.
