U.S. Air Force leaders and a distinguished guest applaud during a ceremony held by Boeing commemorating the final U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III, P-223 Sept. 12, 2013, at Long Beach, Calif. The C-17 was flown from California to Joint Base Charleston, S.C., by pilots to include Gen. Paul Selva, Air Mobility Command commander, Lt. Gen. James Jackson, Air Force Reserve commander, and Lt. Gen. Stanley Clarke, Air National Guard director. 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.
