Now this is a new impressive capability to have for aircraft. ALARP (Air Land Aircraft Refuelling Point) has only been a capability, used on C-130. However the C-17, takes it to another level, due to it’s bigger fuel load capacity.
why am i not invited to this stuff
Definitely keep an eye out for more events as we get into 2023!
yea thats for sure
correct, this was the event we held today where the screenshots are from ;)
yea i should have joined it
With NATO SAC livery this aircaft would be my favourite, I live not far away from Pápa Airbase :)
Indeed, we in EAF simulate NATO SAC operations and regularly operate from papa.
Would love to see this livery and other air forces that operate the moose.
Hopefully we get a C-17 update. This awesome military airlifter truly is one of a kind!
Reverse thrust on the the ground and air is a must for a rework. To replicate C-17 ops. It sure gets you down quick from a great height !

Bump for the master of the globe
Next update - C-17 rework and B707 to include the KC-135R, E-3 AWACS, and E-8 JSTARS. This will satisfy civilian, military, and old school pilots.
Man I miss McDonnell Douglas. They called Long Beach home and brought out amazing planes such as the C-17, KC-10, F-15, and many others!
The C-17 was originally made by McDonnell Douglas? I didn’t know that :O
