Dirt runway testing increases C-17 safety, agility
A C-17 Globemaster III takes off from Fort Hunter Liggett, Calif., Sept. 23, 2006, while performing take-off and landing testing on semi-prepared runways. The first of four test phases was conducted at Fort Hunter Liggett to validate the ability of the aircraft to bring a large force into a wet or dry dirt airfield without making runway condition corrections.
