[Avionics Today 12-01-2015] The final Boeing C-17 Globemaster III military airlifter at the company’s plant in Long Beach, Calif. departed on Nov. 29, marking the official end of aircraft production in Long Beach. The airlifter flew to the company’s San Antonio location, where it will remain until delivery to the Qatar Emiri Air Force early in 2016.
With the completion of C-17 production, Boeing will continue the Globemaster III legacy, providing support, maintenance and upgrades to the worldwide C-17 fleet under the C-17 Globemaster III Integrated Sustainment Program (GISP) performance-based logistics agreement.
