STEWART AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Newburg-- New York Air National Guard Staff Sgt. Brian Burns prepares the nose area of C-17 Tail Number 10188, formerly assigned to Joint Base Charleston , for painting with 105th Airlift Wing markings on Wednesday, October 10.The plane, the second of two extended range C-17s, arrived at the base on Tuesday, Oct. 9. The new planes can fly over 6,000 miles before refueling instead of the 4,000 a standard C-17 can fly. This makes the wing more flexible in responding to missions, said Col Timothy LaBarge, the commander of the 105th.
