STEWART AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Newburgh, N.Y.--Members of the New York Air National Guard’s 105th Airlift Wing stand in formation before one of the wing’s new C-17s during a ceremony held on Saturday August 6 to mark the transition from the C-5A Galaxy to the C-17 Globemaster III. "Time marches on. The C-5As are 43 years old," said Brig. Gen. Verle Johnston, commander of the 105th Airlift Wing. "[The C-17] will be the perfect airplane and our wing will learn to love it."
