US Air Force C-17 Globemaster at Shannon

This was just one of the US military planes at Shannon today. Its a United States Air Force Boeing C-17A Globemaster III and it arrived from an air base in Jordan. It landed at Shannon at about 11am , took off again after refueling at about 13.15 pm and travelled to Andrews Air Base near Washington. Its carrying capacity is 170,000 lbs - that's a lot of military equipment.

We are refueling war at Shannon on a daily basis.
