For the plane-spotters out there…
The first of Australia’s C-17 Globermaster aircraft was due to arrive at Canberra Airport around 11.30 this morning. If anyone can snap a pic it would be much appreciated.
Broadly speaking (extremely broadly) a jet version of the Hercules, the C-17 is able to drag 72,000 kg into the sky which is handy as our new tanks weigh 70,000 kg and these things have been bought to lug the Abrams to pacific islands for the intimidation of whatever locals can be found there.
