AF Budget
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AFPN) -- A formation of 17 C-17 Globemaster IIIs fly in formation. This year's $1.3 billion military construction request, as part of the president's fiscal year 2007 budget plan, is the largest in the last 15 years and includes projects for new mission beddowns for the C-17 Globemaster III. The flight demonstrates the U.S. Air Force's strategic capability and is the largest formation of C-17s to take flight from a single base. The C-17s are assigned to the 437th and 315th Airlift Wings at Charleston Air Force Base. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Richard T. Kaminsky)
