The New Zealand Defence Force has released photos of RNZAF
Bell UH-1H Iroqouis helicopters being loaded onto a RAAF Boeing C-17 for
transport to Papua New Guinea to help out in election monitoring.
Though I’ve seen the C-17 at air shows and had a chance to
walk around inside, I’m still blown away by how massive the cargo hold is. The
UH-1H is a pretty big helo, but it is dwarfed by the C-17.
Boeing recently said that India, which has confirmed orders for 10 C-17s, could buy 6-8 more.
