Ran across this nice pic of a C-17 that is assigned to the 517th Airlift Squadron assigned to Elmendorf AFB.

Here we go.

It's just about ready to come off the back end of the paint line ...
For those in the Trenton area it is still scheduled for arrival on 9 August.

Wow! Wow! Wow!  Never thought I'd ever see that!  It is still hard to believe....but a picture really is worth a thousand words.  Globesmasher, any idea when first flight is scheduled for?  
I can't believe we finally have a government that takes the military seriously.

First arrival flight is 9 Aug into Trenton.
OPSEC - can't say when the first mission will be.

Stupid civi question, but the 701 signifies what exactly? I'm assuming that its just an aircraft number, that does not correlate to the Sqn.

Just an aircraft number....identifies each individual airframe

Much obliged. I've seen info on when the first 2 are delivered, how about the last 2? Any ideas as to when the fleet/Sqn is fully kitted out and deployable? Or is that OPSEC territory?

These babies sure do look purdy!

Hey GS,

They need to paint the names of the pilots flying that baby home to YTR under the windows..."Hedgehog" and "ojohny" would certainly add some style. ;D

 Well since we already have a trained flight crew, I suspect they can start loading her up an hour after the acceptance ceremony, unless there is some legal/bureaucratic hoop jumping required. It would be nice to have the ceremony in Trenton and then have them announce that she has arrived in kandahar 2 days later to delivering the first Leo 2’s.   ;D     (Don't worry I am not expecting an answer to this, just wishing)

Actually, I'd rather hope that the Leo 2's arrive in KAF much earlier than 11 August (given the ceremony on 9 August).  ;D
So, there I was....

Still some legal and bureaucratic hoop jumping to be done and also a little bit of testing that can only be done at home in Canada.

This first mission will happen very quickly .... there is a lot of pressure to get it done.
You'll all know when it actually happens since I'm sure there'll be plenty of media coverage at the time or as soon as it occurs.

It'll be nice to use it to deliver brand new tanks ... and to also roll a brand new Chinook out the back too.
That's about the only way G2G will get a flight in this thing ... as the crew for the Chinook that we deliver in theatre!!!  ;D  ;)

PMSH has an Arctic Defense oriented tour planned this summer sometime.  Would be ++ nice to have a C177 be part of the trip . . maybe do an airdrop over Frobisher bay :)

 I am just happy to see the plane,(thanks for the photo). It's good to know that our air lift problem is being dealt with and were the planes are first used doesn't matter to myself as long as they operate as predicted. Good luck to the first air crew, and I know you will have fun. In the end that's what it is all about. ;)
