This C-17 was damaged in Afghanistan back in January 2012 when it overran the runway due to bad weather!! The airplane is clearly mistreated and the front door is now gone, but I must admit that the crew did a spectacular shot field landing braking hard after touch-down! Funny thing is, when they depart the next day, one set of wheels didn't come up but the crew managed to fix the problem! [Canon 7D + Sigma 120-400]
