Hey I recognize that 1st one! I worked on those bad boys for 5 years at RAF Mildenhall England. I worked on the R-model variety, and saw 'em go from a classic analogue avionics system to a fully up to date 'glass cockpit' with multifunctional displays and lots of digital navigation stuff. I am now working the C-17A's.
It was amazing going from a 40+ year old airframe to this one. We are still getting brand new ones in from the factory. It is really neat going out to a jet and smelling that NEW JET smell!
Well anyway I probably have fixed that jet in the picture a hundred times over the years!

Tom, I got to tour the Globemaster at Nasa Dryden in 92 I think. We got to see them practicing those very high steep approaches the aircraft is capable of:) That and the fact that they ask Loadmasters for input in designing it, at least the trunk ;) the short field capability is icing on the cake :D
BTW when I mention taxi drivers and such, it is with utmost respect and gratitude. Its a long march to anywhere any more :eek:
