Indian air force receives fourth C-17 Globemaster
The Indian Air Force (IAF) has received its fourth Boeing C-17 Globemaster strategic transport.
The delivery on 19 October came after the type was formally inducted into the IAF in September. Boeing says it will deliver five more C-17s in 2014, completing its contract with the IAF.
The IAF recently used the C-17s to support relief efforts for victims affected by Cyclone Phailin.
Boeing will complete production of the C-17 transporter in the fourth quarter of 2015. In addition to the remaining aircraft for India, it will build 15 more aircraft for delivery to customers outside the USA.
