Those lucky enough to be outside in the (Eagle-Gypsum) area about noon on Sunday, May 3rd 2015 – caught a glimpse of (3) C-17 Globemaster’s on maneuvers over Eagle County. The C-17 is a very big, heavy lift Military transport Aircraft design to move troops and Heavy Equipment into any part of the Globe.
Neither Colorado, nor Utah has a (A.M.C.) base…so the local speculation is a training mission for C-17 Pilots and (troops?) flying and deploying in Mountainous conditions…much like those found in Afghanistan…
