USTRANSCOM commander to deliver new C-17

Gen. William M. Fraser III, U.S. Transportation Command commander, will be delivering a new C-17 Globemaster III July 17 at JBLM-McChord Field.
The aircraft delivery is part of a normal rotation to maintain the fleet at
an authorized level. USTRANSCOM is the single manager for global air, land and sea transportation for the Department of Defense. The 62nd Airlift Wing reports to Air Mobility Command which is a subordinate command of USTRANSCOM.

The C-17 Globemaster III is the newest, most flexible cargo aircraft to enter the airlift force. It is capable of rapid strategic delivery of troops and all types of cargo to main operating bases or directly to forward bases in the deployment area.
