"Spirit of the Sourdoughs" from 517th Airlift Squadron, Elmendorf AFB, Alaska relaxes after 2 demo flights in the baking Indian Sun. Children were allowed to come onboard to experience the awe that the Globemaster is. The heads seen below are of the happy parents. IAF was floored, no tenders - The order was subsequently placed for 10 C-17's. [Aero India 2009]

Nice Shot and nice explanation! The fuel bowser in background looks like a pygmy in front of this.
