Boeing C-17A "Globemaster III"

A high-wing, four engine, T-tailed military transport aircraft, the C-17 is America's last remaining in-production transport built at Long Beach Airport.   It can carry roughly 169,000 pounds,  fly long distances and land in remote airfields day or night. 

The landing gear is crazy.
The mother is f#@!ing huge.

Jumped out of them many times. Soooo much more spacious than a C-130. Like the Cadillac of the sky.
