C-17 Globemaster History:
The C-17 Globemaster III is the newest, most flexible cargo aircraft to enter the airlift force. The C-17 is capable of rapid strategic delivery of troops and all types of cargo to main operating bases or directly to forward bases in the deployment area. The C-17 cockpit accommodates pilot, co-pilot and two observer positions. The C-17 has an international range and the ability to land on small airfields. This American strategic airlifter first flew on September 15, 1991.
The C-17 Globemaster III measures 174 feet long (53 meters) with a wingspan of 169 feet, 10 inches (51.75 meters). The aircraft is powered by four, fully reversible, Federal Aviation Administration-certified F117-PW-100 engines (the military designation for the commercial Pratt & Whitney PW2040), currently used on the Boeing 757. Each engine is rated at 40,440 pounds of thrust. The thrust reversers direct the flow of air upward and forward to avoid ingestion of dust and debris. Maximum use has been made of off-the-shelf and commercial equipment, including Air Force-standardized avionics.
Since it entered service in January 1995, over 130 aircraft have been delivered to the US Air Force with 50 more on order. Deliveries are expected to conclude in 2008. A further 10 aircraft were ordered in December 2006, for delivery by October 2009.
