BZ Chino 2010 - C17 Demo

Photo Gallery

The U.S. Air Force brought in a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III from March AFB to the Chino air show. The C-17 was open to the public for the early parts of the show - but they cleared everyone out towards the end so they could do a flying demo!

Here's the C-17 doing a short take off demonstration.


Banking aggressively, the C-17 has great handling characterstics.


Here he is doing a slow pass with the gear down.


Besides the C-5 Galaxy, the C-17 is the only airplane the U.S. flies capable of carrying a Main Battle Tank.


After a few passes, the C-17 lands, coming to a stop using not too much runway.
