Another creatively painted C-17 is delivered


A couple of years ago, Qatar received their first C-17.  It wasn’t painted like all the other grey tails from the US, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, UAE and now India.  Instead, it was painted in the colors of Qatar Airways.   It become a spotter’s dream to photograph as it traveled around the world delivering humanitarian aid and flying on missions for the Emir.

Fast forward to 2014 and Kuwait now joins the fray with a very ’90s looking paint scheme on their new C-17.  The two tone white and grey plane was delivered today in Long Beach.  You can read more about the delivery ceremony here:
