A7-MAB (cn F-209/QA-2) The second C-17A destined for the Qatar Emiri Air Force is captured just after emerging from the paint shop at Long Beach wearing this awesome livery, the first C-17A to ever to sport an airline livery.

Saw it flying out Monday...a bit of a change from the ole gray ones I think. Cool plane.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 22, 2009:
This is the second C-17 which is going to the Qatar Emiri Air Force, it is not owned by Qatar airlines so im not sure why its painted in their livery, the other Qatari C-17 left Long Beach earlier the day that this photo was taken in the normal grey military colours with QEAF titles on it.

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri August 21, 2009:
To bad about the white part they should have done it in grey

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 17, 2009:
Before it went ot the flight line it was inside the hangar after paint. Very odd looking up close .

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 10, 2009:
It isn't the photo that is fantastic it is the aircraft and the Qatar colours. It looks fabulous. Beauty is in the eye of the 'beerholder'!

A visitor from Belgium posted Sun August 2, 2009:
Great!! Long live the Globemaster! :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun August 2, 2009:
Very nice photo i didnt know that Qatarairways owns c-17s...

A visitor from Jordan posted Sun August 2, 2009:
I thought it was for passengers, they have to change this livery to more aggressive one...

A visitor from - posted Sat August 1, 2009:
Wonder what cargo she will carry?

A visitor from Qatar posted Fri July 31, 2009:
This is a very interesting photo. Its a beautiful C-17, but the Qatar Airways colors look truly out of place and awful.

A visitor from Thailand posted Fri July 31, 2009:
It's Giant!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 30, 2009:
OK, I'll be the first... a beautiful C-17 painted in a horrible paint scheme. The livery does not belong on this military jet. Awful, Yuck!!

A visitor from Singapore posted Thu July 30, 2009:
It's not a dream! Military in airline livery

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 30, 2009:
Wow...very stunning picture. With the C-17 shape and this paint scheme, this is one of the best looking planes that I have ever seen. This will gather a lot of attention.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 29, 2009:
Wow! i never thought that c-17's were for civilian use the qatar colors look amazing on it

A visitor from - posted Wed July 29, 2009:
Awesome, the best livery on C17 so far

A visitor from Italy posted Wed July 29, 2009:
An amazing livery on a great looking plane. I thought I was drunk when I saw a C-17 with an airline scheme...

A visitor from - posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Amazing the views on this photo! over 31,000 in one day! must be among the most?!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
The antelope looks great on that tail!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Such a sexy looking aircraft

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
This must be the best looking C17 aircraft I have ever seen. Five stars from me.


A visitor from Ireland posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Think this example is destined for use in support of the Emir, carrying limousines etc as part of the Amiri flight, most of the other aircraft used in this purpose carry standard Qatar Airways schemes. Looks stunning however, does raise the question of Boeing reviving the BC-17 proposal to keep the line running

A visitor from Canada posted Tue July 28, 2009:
What an awesome picture. Looks so natural too.

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
In one word .... awesome! The quality of this photo is worth more than 5 stars...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Mmm... I wonder if it could be made into a double-decker passenger jet? It is really cool to see a plane like this in an airline livery. Great stuff!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Intresting!!! I thought the concept of the MD-17 or the civilian version of the Globemaster III has been revived

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Airplane is beautiful. Its actually a Qatar air force aircraft. I don't find it very odd that they used their civilian airlines livery, considering the Gov't of Qatar owns the airline.

A visitor from - posted Tue July 28, 2009:
You know...I would have never thought that I'd see C-17 fly the stratosphere in a Qatar Airways livery. But I'll admit, it looks very acceptable in a more "colorful" scheme than just the traditional gray that the Air Force uses. Wonderful picture and remarkable clarity.


A visitor from Spain posted Tue July 28, 2009:
What a catch! I think for a moment that the "BC-17" project was alive again... Nice picture and thanks for it. Cheers.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Great shot Micheal!
Thought I would never see a C-17 in this awesome paint scheme! Hope I can see this a/c in real!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Wow! That's what I call special. A military plane waring a civil,airliner livery. I love it. They should keep it this way. Would be a nice camo like the old soviet airforce planes wearing Aeroflot liveries.

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
I think the C-17 looks amazing in an airline livery and would love to see it in other paint schemes as well. Well done!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Wow, that is crazy stuff... looks awesome. Imagine it with all the other airline c/s

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Never thought I would see an airline livery on a Globe Master!

A visitor from Italy posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Awesome photo. Me too I wonder "WTF?" watching the photo at first. It's like to see an Alitalia C130 !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Looks stunning!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Incredible! Soo nice! A "civil"Globemaster!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
I thought it looked different, awesome, very neat idea

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Awesome!!!! Great Find Mike

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Beautiful!!! I have seen drawings of the C-17 in FedEx paint before, but seeing this in real life is like a dream!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Nice photo, Mike! You got it very quick!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Do they want to use it commercially as well?

A visitor from - posted Tue July 28, 2009:
MY GOD! That is beautiful!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
This must be the coolest paint job on a c17 globemaster hope to see more like this. cool pic michael keep it up

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 28, 2009:
This is just crazy! Great photo though!
Does anyone know why they painted the aircraft this way?

A visitor from India posted Tue July 28, 2009:
Stunning livery on a stunning aircraft!
Cheers- Sean D'Silva (BOM)

A visitor from Japan posted Tue July 28, 2009:
It's a definitely beautiful Globemaster. I hadn't imagined this plane in an airline scheme until today but she has a really nice shape for civil scheme as well as military gray color.
