McChord AFB takes delivery of new C-17A

Rests on taxiway "Juliet" prior to departure.

The most stunning view of a C-17A (in my opinion) as she taxies full length on "Lima" towards a Rwy 30 departure.

Holding short of Rwy 30 at "Lima 1" prior to departure.

The crew readies for departure.

C-17A (P-212) 09-9212 performs the traditional delivery fly-by as she departs Long Beach Airport (LGB/KLGB) at 0915 PST as "Reach 9212" bound for her new home at McChord AFB in Washington State.
