Charleston civic leaders get a tour of the C-17 Globemaster III during a strategic brigade airdrop exercise involving a 13-ship formation Dec. 18 from Charleston Air Force Base, S.C. C-17s must be able to meet the Army's goal of airdropping a brigade's worth of troops and equipment (about 3,250 Soldiers and 3,450 tons of equipment). This multiship training demonstrates the teamwork of active-duty Airmen, reservists and civilians to be mission ready when the nation needs this critical capability. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt.
