The Indian Air Force (IAF) flew its first C-17 to India today, becoming the newest operator of the airlifter.

The C-17 will equip the Indian Air Force with humanitarian and strategic capabilities. Boeing will support the IAF C-17 fleet through an integrated sustainment program contract that ensures mission readiness by providing C-17 customers access to a support network for worldwide parts availability and economies of scale.

Boeing has now delivered 254 C-17s, including 222 to the US Air Force and a total of 32 C-17s to Australia, Canada, India, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the NATO members.
