Kuwait receives uniquely-liveried C-17

Kuwait has received its first of an expected two Boeing C-17, with the airlifter sporting a special livery for the Gulf state.
As with other international operators of the C-17, Boeing will support the Kuwaiti fleet via its Globemaster III integrated sustainment programme. It has previously signed a letter of intent to also acquire a second example.
Kuwait joins the air forces of Australia, Canada, India, Qatar, the UK, the United Arab Emirates and the USA in operating the C-17, along with a consortium of NATO and Partnership for Peace nations. Its first aircraft is the 260th of the type to have been delivered. The company is continuing with its efforts to find buyers for a remaining 15 units being built without confirmed customers.
