  1. I wonder if the plywood was the Air Force’s idea. Don’t want gross Army stuff making their plane icky.

      1. At first blush it seems a great pic advertising interoperability and the sense of purpose coming from fighting a shared enemy.

        And yet, the place where the two mighty forces meet is flimsy as plywood. Indeed, is plywood.

        Throw in some race and gender and you have a dissertation waiting to happen.

  2. I commented on a previous post about the deck strength of massive ships. Ditto that for these big cargo planes. It’s impressive that a C-17 can handle a 70 ton M1 on its deck or that a C-5 can handle two.
