U.S. Air Force McDonnell Douglas C-17A (P-7) 90-0532

Based at McChord Air Force Base in Washington and operated by the 62nd AW 446th AW, this gorgeous bird returns home to Long Beach Airport (LGB/KLGB) where she was built for a visit. It felt like the old days here at the airport with her return. 
It was originally delivered on August 26, 1993 to Altus Air Force Base and the 97th AMW. It was also the first C-17A to be modified with the Airlift Defense System.
