The journey home: Final US Air Force C-17 takes inaugural flight

Lt. Gen. Stanley Clarke, Air National Guard director, flies the final U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III, P-223, Sept. 12, 2013. Clarke landed the C-17 at Joint Base Charleston, S.C. Lt. Gen. James Jackson, Air Force Reserve commander, performed the take-off from California and Gen. Paul Selva, Air Mobility Commander, took over mid-flight. This historical event comes more than 20 years after the 437th Airlift Wing and the 315th Airlift Wing took delivery of the very first C-17 to enter the Air Force inventory June 14, 1993, and marks the successful completion of C-17 production for the U.S. Air Force.
