Heavy Lift Herd

Eleven C-17 Globemaster IIIs line up on the runway Dec. 10, 2015, after a large formation exercise airdrop during “”Rainier War” at Moses Lake, Wash. Rainier War is a semi-annual large formation exercise hosted by the 62nd Airlift Wing. It is designed to train aircrew under realistic scenarios that support full spectrum operations against modern threats and replicate today's contingency operations. Aircrews from JB Lewis-McChord, Wash.; JB Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; JB Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska; and JB Charleston, S.C., participated.
