To see this aircraft in person gives you a better understanding of the capabilities of the Globemaster III. What a great aircraft (Well not as great as the C-130 but close)

It's crazy to see how much dirt those huge engines kick up!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 26, 2007:
When I see C-17s landing around here they are louder than Hades. I can not imagine how much noise was rolling across the ground after that takeoff. Love the ‘dusting’ they gave the runway

Ok, the situation alone is impresive enough, but to capture the aircraft so cleanly and sharply as well makes this a masterpiece.
