Today at work at IAH
, I saw a C-17 taxi by. I stopped dead in my tracks as it clicked that it was a C-17, but I noticed all the markings were covered up except the yellow reflective strips. There were obviously decals over the marks so it wasn't completely unmarked, but one decal near the tail on the fuselage was a circle, and not in the shape of the USAF
roundel. Also, I the UAE Royal Flight 744 is in town and landed yesterday, 6/25, and parked on the east cargo ramp, along with some Gulfstreams that were sitting there before the 744 got there. The C-17 also parked in that area next to the 747, so I guess it's there to support the Emir, or VIP.
Any info would be appreciated.
