A big treat for us as the RAAF conducted low level training between the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast yesterday in a pair of C17A Globies...Quite nimble for such a large jet..



A PAIR of C-17A Globemasters conducted a tactical formation flight at low level along the Sunshine Coast yesterday. The aircrafts were just 600 metres apart and 90 metres above the water when they flew over Noosa. Flying just 500 metres off the beach, they headed south past Maroochydore and Caloundra before heading on to Stradbroke Island, the Gold Coast and Tweed Heads. The flight was a training opportunity for C-17A Globemaster crews based at RAAF Base Amberley's No. 36 Squadron. Flying Officer Bodie Heyward, a pilot with the squadron, said C-17A crews conducted extensive training in the simulator as well as in the real planes.

You see these planes operating out of Edinburgh here is SA occasionally . You may not necessarily see them come in but you sure as hell hear them leave . You look up and just wonder how things that big can possibly be in the air .
