The C-17 really put on a great show, even without dropping anything.

Not sure i'm understanding the math here ??? , i've seen both side by side and they are pretty much the same size except they have differences in landing techniques and distances , but when i saw them take of from the airport here they look identical in all ways even size . Thats why i say i don't kow which is bigger ?

Thanks for the measurements . I tried to google some with no luck . Seeing them tho at a distance of maybe 500 yards it's hard to tell the size difference unless they are side by side . I've taken images of both and got them somewhere but have to look them up on some CD i transfered them to .

Ok, that Trash Hauler Heritage Flight shot is fabulous Dave!

Utterly, totally wall worthy!! I bet the pilots of each would love it as well.

No prob. I totally agree. It is tough to judge size when you're a long ways away. You'll really be able to tell the difference if you ever get an opportunity to tour them.

wow.

Looking at that formation shot, it got me thinking about the reverse of the 'could an aircraft take off on a treadmill question'.

Could that C47(?) land on the C17? Presumably when its wheels touched, it wouldn't lurch forwards as the props are doing the pulling and those would continue at the same speed it was previously doing. So in theory it could 'vertically land' on a C17 travelling at the same speed?

(thats my pointless question for the weekend all done!)

no dear, it didn't cost much at all

What do you mean as a dependent ? Were you in the AF and one of the flight crew ?? I toured one at an air show back about 20 yrs ago and they told us that it took a crew of 12 to fly this monster and we got to see in the actual cockpit where 2 pilots sit and where the seats were for the rest of the crew to sit while taking off and landing . Thought it weird that the seats faced the rear of the plane . They told us why but i forgot why .
