Mini C-17’s first trip abroad

Attendees of the Yeovilton, England crowd around the 315th Airift Wing's mini C-17 and a Charleston C-17 Globemaster III July 2. This was the mini C-17's first trip across the pond and was a huge hit at Yeovilton Air Day 2016. This is the 315th AWs second time visiting Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton, England, and the mighty presence of the mini C-17 helped seal the deal for another “Best Static Display” award. The miniature C-17 has been used all across the United States to promote the Air Force Reserve and bolster recruiting efforts at air shows, parades and other community events.
