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

Lt. Col. Doug Soho, 437th Operations Group chief of standards and evaluations, flies co-pilot to Lt. Gen. Stanley Clarke, Air National Guard director, during the first flight of the final U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III, P-223, Sept. 12, 2013, to Joint Base Charlesotn, S.C. Lt. Gen. James Jackson, Air Force Reserve commander, performed the takeoff from California with Gen. Paul Selva, Air Mobility Command commander, taking over mid-flight and Lt. Gen. Stanley Clarke, Air National Guard commander, landing the aircraft at Joint Base Charleston, S.C. 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.
