Global mobility aircraft saving lives in Iraq
A C-17 Globemaster III takes off from a stateside location Aug. 30. The Air Force has placed two C-17 squadrons on a 120-day rotation in the U.S. Central Command Air Forces area of responsibility, according to Gen. Duncan J. McNabb, Air Mobility Command commander, who spoke at the Air Force Association's 2006 Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition in Washington, D.C., Sept. 26. Those C-17s are now experiencing more wear and tear than would be expected under normal operations. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Nicholas Pilch)
