JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. --

Airmen and their families gathered on the flight line for Santa's annual arrival aboard a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft Dec. 2, 2017, here.

This year was the seventh anniversary for Santa’s visit to the base, which hosted more than 100 315th Airlift Wing personnel and their families for the event.

As the families boarded the plane, the children had the opportunity to spend time with Santa and Mrs. Claus to give him each of their Christmas lists. After visiting with Santa, the families also had the opportunity to take a tour of the Wing’s mini C-17 on display close to Santa’s C-17 sleigh.
