Published:
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Boeing has delivered the final C-17 produced for the U.S. Air Force, more than two decades after the mammoth and versatile transport plane was rolled out as the Cold War wound down.
Military officials took delivery of the C-17 Globemaster III -- the 223rd sold to the Air Force -- during a ceremony Thursday attended by workers at Boeing's Long Beach assembly plant.
The massive, four-engine C-17 made its debut in 1991. It quickly became a war and disaster workhorse.
The Long Beach assembly line still has pending orders in the foreign market. Boeing's overseas customers include the United Kingdom, Australia, India and NATO.
