Welcome back to the our Channel for a feature on the mesmerizing machines and facilities used by US Airmen to repair and maintain their aircraft components. I believe our military budget is way too high but I must admit It's great to see the Air Force making so many crucial parts. The ole saying sell to the government and get rich. like three dollars for a washer. I wonder if all services has this knowledge. Try for a second to imagine what kind of country we would be if we didn't spend all those billions every year on the military.

The C-17 Globemaster III is a strategic transport aircraft, able to airlift cargo close to a battle area. The size and weight of U.S. mechanized firepower and equipment have grown in recent decades from increased air mobility requirements, particularly for large or heavy non-palletized outsize cargo. It has a length of 174 feet (53 m) and a wingspan of 169 feet 10 inches (51.77 m) and uses about 8% composite materials, mostly in secondary structure and control surfaces.
