That's about 1 1/3 years worth of continuous flight hours per airframe. Not bad.

A good friend of our family was project manager for the C-17 at Edwards. He took us out on the base one day and let us go through one of the first built. That's a heck of a record to reach with only one loss.

Yeah, it is quite a record. Let's hope it can continue that trend.
