The first phase of C-17 Globemaster III drag reduction testing consisted of putting six orange Finlets on the aft part of the fuselage. A C-17 on loan from Joint Base McChord-Lewis, Washington, is the test plane for the program. With three Finlets on each side, test sorties were conducted to see how the C-17 performed with the modification. (U.S. Air Force photo/Kenji Thuloweit) C-17 drag reduction testing aims at saving fuel
From testing synthetic biofuels to "vortex surfing," Edwards Air Force Base, California, is on the forefront of finding new ways to cut fuel costs for the Air Force. The latest venture is currently underway at the 418th Flight Test Squadron where a test team of Air Force and Boeing personnel recently completed the first phase of Air Force Research Laboratory's C-17 Drag Reduction Program.
