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

Lt. Gen. James Jackson, Air Force Reserve commander, performs pre-flight checks on the final U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III, P-223, Sept. 12, 2013, at Long Beach, Calif. Jackson performed the take-off from California with Gen. Paul Selva, Air Mobility Command commander, taking over mid-flight and Lt. Gen. Stanley Clarke, Air National Guard director, 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.
