We had two unbelievable passes of the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III through the Mach Loop in Wales on July 7th. I’ve seen some sights through here, but this was a special one.
This is the biggest aircraft ever to do the loop, a record that will be hard to beat. This particular aircraft is from Charleston AFB in South Carolina.
This is the first trip to a military field with my new Sony PXW-X160. Starting to get some commendable results I think.
The wind was from the east today so the aircraft were arriving and departing from runway 07.
In this video a C-17 (ZZ171) departs at about 15:00 and an A330 MRTT (ZZ333) arrives at around 17:20. I managed to forget my scanner today, so no comms!
