After many months of trying to catch a C-17 in Vegas, I finally have done it. This aircraft, 97-0047, flew into Vegas a few days ago from Charleston, SC for an unknown reason. I planned today's trip to be catching a Delta 764 Skyteam and a few others but it ended up being an hours trip worth of C-17 shots and receiving safety cards from a friend. I of course miss majority of the intended aircraft I came to spot but definitely worth the sacrifice.
Originally, this flight was headed back to Charleston, in excitement of it’s transponder turning on, I rushed over to the Goodwill HQ to grab some shots.
Funny enough, they came back (Have no idea why) and arrived on 26L!
Here’s the safety cards a friend was willing to give me for free!
