A visitor from Mexico posted Wed October 15, 2014:
Qatar's livery is one of the best there is IMHO, and on this airplane it simply looks amazing,

A visitor from BRAZIL posted Sun July 20, 2014:
Amazing military airplane i would like to be inside and fly over

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 16, 2014:
Makes you wonder what other USAF heavies would look like in civilian paint jobs. A C-5 or KC-135 in those really slick New Zealand liveries?

A visitor from China posted Fri September 7, 2012:
Wow!!!It is the best livery on c-17!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 16, 2012:
I have seen this beauty up close at Al Udeid AB in Qatar a few months after you took this pic ( I think it was in Nov when I went through there )

A visitor from - posted Fri September 2, 2011:
This is so much better than solid dark grey! Why don't all countries paint their C-17s in airline liveries?

A visitor from - posted Fri September 2, 2011:
Strange cammo!!!

A visitor from - posted Wed September 15, 2010:
Perhaps to fool some enemies ... hehehe

A visitor from - posted Sun August 1, 2010:
Wow! I really wasn't expecting this aircraft to look so good in painting other than the "classical grey". Really nice shot.

A visitor from Thailand posted Thu April 22, 2010:
Great , It's look like qatar airways .

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 10, 2010:
I will never get used to seeing anything but Low-vis grey on a C-17. Awesome picture though! You captured it right when the anti-collision beacons were flashing :)

A visitor from Kazakhstan posted Sun February 28, 2010:

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 27, 2010:
I bet the painters at Long Beach were confused about this strange camo pattern being put on a military aircraft. It really does look great in this paint.

A visitor from - posted Sat February 27, 2010:
It looks more civilian...

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat February 27, 2010:
Nice to see the C-17 wearing this beautiful color scheme.

A visitor from - posted Sat February 27, 2010:
Too bad Boeing decided not to develop the BC-17 otherwise we would have seen a lot more of these planes painted up all neat 'n pretty like this

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 14, 2009:
Gorgeous is an understatement!

A visitor from Italy posted Thu September 17, 2009:
I wonder if Boeing will build a civil version of the globemaster...

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 6, 2009:
In Qatar right now myself, according to the BOEING Reps here when we were supporting them on the arrival of the first C-17 (which is a Grey Tail) the commerical livery one is the Prince's personal plane for transport of his camels, horses, etc.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 1, 2009:
Let me guess! this plane will be used to carry some of the Lamborghinis, Feraris and Mazeratis belonging to the royal family and follow them wherever they go!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue September 1, 2009:
Definitely not a typical air force paint scheme! nice pic though :)

A visitor from - posted Tue September 1, 2009:
It looks so cool and unique!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue September 1, 2009:
Awesome looking livery!

A visitor from South Africa posted Tue September 1, 2009:
Looks a lot smaller when painted in civilian colours

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 1, 2009:
At first I thought: "WHAT??!!?? Qatar Airways has a C-17?? You can't be serious!!!"

A visitor from Germany posted Tue September 1, 2009:
Love those c/s on this A/c

A visitor from - posted Tue September 1, 2009:
Beautiful photo, strange paint scheme!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 1, 2009:
The livery looks a lot more flattering on an A330!

A visitor from Italy posted Tue September 1, 2009:
WOW! Awesome plane, a C-17 in airline livery!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue September 1, 2009:
There is something very cool about this baby. It looks like a pimped up ride. Checkout those big engines (like low profile tires on sports rims). A low rider. Yo momma, y'all sure too hot of the road. ;-)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 1, 2009:
It's nice to see the awesome C-17 in something more interesting than grey! Cool!

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 31, 2009:
Awesome shot Kevin. Glad you were able to get it this time!
