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

Incredible - this would be a sprightly take-off for an aircraft half the Globemaster's weight! The dust is just the finishing touch on a great capture :)

Superb catch, not something you see every day, especially given this is a heavy. Very well done, five stars!

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

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)
