The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III (ICAO: C17 / WAKE: HEAVY) is a large four-engine military transport aircraft. Created in Second Life by Myuki Aircraft, the aircraft was based on the real-life C-17 Globemaster III, designed and built originally by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) for the United States Air Force (USAF).
The real-life C-17 carries forward the name of two previous piston-engined military cargo aircraft, the Douglas C-74 Globemaster and the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II. The aircraft is 174 feet (53 m) long, has a wingspan of about 170 feet (52 m) and is powered by four Pratt & Whitney F117-PW-100 turbofan engines. The C-17 is designed to operate from runways as short as 3,500 ft (1,064 m) and as narrow as 90 ft (27 m) and commonly performs strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world; additional roles include tactical airlift, medical evacuation and airdrop duties.
