C17 At DTW 11-12-11 Why?

Sat Nov 12, 2011 6:20 pm

I spotted a C17 flying over my house today going into DTW. I don't see military aircraft fly over the house very often so I drove over to DTW to have a look. I saw the C17 sitting on the ramp, with no activity going on around it. Why was it there?

Probably supporting Bidens visit...

That would make sense. Probably has some vehilces in it or something. I saw a C17 at STL once loading some Limos after a visit by Hillary Clinton.
