I work with a woman who is doing her recurrent training on the C17 with the local USAF Guard Unit here in town. She took a Mil Leave Leave of Absence and has been flying missions down range and back for the past year. 

She says there is almost nothing the C17 cant do.

Nice one. Impressive flying.

Reminded me of some cockpit video of Fat Albert. The Hercules C130 support plane for the blue Angels. They have their own demo slot as part of these air displays.

They throw this thing around as if they’re flying a little Cessna

Check at the 0.48 min mark where they push the nose over and people and stuff starts to float in the air!

Enjoy

Looks like the guy in the back wasn't wearing a seatbelt!

GPWS seemed a bit redundant. Even got a rad alt call.

What speed was this at? I'm guessing "not slow".
