Aviation Photo #1679489 Boeing C-17A Globemaster III - USA - Air Force

"Spirit of the Sourdoughs" lifting-off aggresively from runway 09 enroute its STOL (Short Take-off & Landing) capabilities demonstration. With the An124 & IL76 production lines shut it seems there's almost no choice left for heavy lifting other than the C-17. To put things in perspective, this airplane is empty and carries only enough fuel for the short demo + reserve. [Aero India 2009]

What you mention in your remarks is very important as they will never say that in any brochures.

Very Nice Remark & Photo.
+1 vote for Military Triholers.
There's plenty of them (MD11's) available for dirt cheap prices.
