Really shows what a C-17 can do - from 'down and dirty' to airborne PDQ.

Note the positions of the aileron and rudder! Someone is really at work in the cockpit.

Awesome action shot man! I like the dust, A simple thing as sand or dust goes well with the sober but cool dark grey on military a/c's. I had a pretty good thrill about a year ago when one of these came flying over my head when I was travelling to school;
It was so low that I could see the High wing design, the T-tail and the special winglets , plus of course, its chubbiness and was therefore easily recognisable as a C-17. My guess is that it was bringing in a Dutch Chinook that needed a thorough check.

Saw a C-17 in NZ early in 2009 for a Air show. What a sight they are. Never knew a plane its size could do what it can do.

These planes are truly amazing, they can land in the amount of runway it takes for a DC-3 to land
