I have had the pleasure of seeing exactly what these things can do since I work closely with March AFB. These planes are nothing short of amazing.Instagram: nickpsomas

I grew up under the flightline less than a mile from MacDill, and I've spent a lot of time at the park adjacent to Peter O Knight. Hard to believe a plane that big could land/take off from that small runway, let alone a pilot mistake that airport for MacDill.
I mean, the approach is from the same direction but damn... theres houses 100 yards from the runway... clearly not an air force base. lol2009 CLS550

I'm glad the concrete didn't buckle under the aircraft's weight. A small runway like that isn't designed to hold the tons that the c-17 packs.-Chris
