C-17 Gets a New Home

The Spirit of Los Angeles, a decade-old C-17 that has been serving with the 437th Airlift Wing at Charleston AFB, S.C., arrived Jan. 23 at March ARB, Calif., its new home. The aircraft is the ninth and final C-17 scheduled to join Air Force Reserve Command’s 452nd AW at March, wing spokeswoman SrA. Desiree Economides told the Daily Report yesterday. She said the Spirit of Los Angeles will continue to be used in flying operations initially, but will eventually transition to a non-flying asset used for maintenance training.
