Last C-17 Delivered to USAF


Recommended Posts

Anyone remember how many 141s where in service at max count?

Larry,

285 were built according to a C-141 web site. The C-141 was an amazing airplane -- too bad most of the crews considered themselves prima donas; well, until the C-5 came along.

Here's the web site. Trying to emulate Casey, but not even coming close.

Ah, the old Marieta hump-back, swept-wing, sub-sonic, bug sucker.

I always thought the nickname "Starlizard" was pretty cool-- especially back in the Euro I camo days.

The C-17 is pretty amazing when you think about it- somewhat strategic airlifter and somewhat tactical. Given that big range of missions, it can get the troops closer to the last combat mile (I like that phrase, but can't figure why) than any predecessor in that role. While they've had many incidents in the 20+ years of it being in-service, the community has only suffered one airframe loss.
