The USAF sent their Hickam Air Force based C17, 05-5146 down to Ohakea to take part in the flying display at the show on both Saturday and Sunday. 05-5146 flew down from Auckland on the Friday before the show for a practice display and the first 5 photos I took from outside the Air Force based.
Weather sure was good on Friday.
I really love the C17 and there is just something about it. Always puts on a good display also.
Check out the 9th photo down.
BINGO......Two C17's in one photo.
A pretty rare sight and I'll never get a shot like this again.
Vapour trail is of a southtown C17 to Christchurch in the cruise as it passes to the east of Ohakea as the visiting C17, 05-5146 performs it's display at the show.
