C-17 Globemaster III, Titan of the Air
Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, Mission Beach, San Diego, California. I saw this C-17 lumbering over mission beach a few weeks back. The sheer size and power of these planes is amazing. Two of those engines are enough to fly a Boeing 757. Each of these lumbering beauties costs over a quarter of a BILLION dollars and has a payload of somewhere around 170,900 lb. Wow.
