Default Aviano Airbase Italy

C-17's are lined up. The attached photos show C-17's lined up for the largest airdrop ever by C-17's at Aviano Airbase Italy. This mass tactical airdrop of US Army's 173 Infantry Brigade occurred on 3-26-03 in Northern Iraq.

Great Pics Agreed they look good lined up and getting ready, looks like McChord and Charelston AFB have a few birds over there hauling cargo , some of these I probably had worked on or at least filled with JP8

Very impressive. I would loved to have heard all those birds rumbling. Sends chills through me just thinking about it.
