C-17 at PHX


#1

I went to sky harbor today (3/21/13) and there was a C-17 parked on the FedEx ramp. Does anyone know when it leaves? I would love to know!


#2

It could be 08-8200 or 99-0166 if it flew in today.


#3

I’ve been waiting to see that one :mrgreen:


#4

McDonnell Douglas did offer the C-17 as a commercial freighter at one time. Boeing, after purchasing McDonnell Douglas, also offered it commercially. The model number would have been MD-17 and BC-17 respectively.

That’s awesome!!!

Is that for AF one? Is Air Force one in town?

09-0525 C-37B ICAO: GLF5 With the above trip.

Obama is in the Mideast at this time.

While we’re at it, do you know when AF one will be n phx next?


#10

Not for PHX :frowning: Check for TFR’s for the PHX area for any hints… tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html
but for Southern California I would get the Mode-S alert for it.
