Canada took delivery of its last two Boeing C-17 strategic transports in mid-May, with all four of its aircraft having been delivered within less than nine months.

Assigned to 429 Sqn at CFB Trenton, Ontario, the new aircraft - dubbed CC-177s in Canadian service - flew their first operational sorties within two days of arriving at the base after having self-protection equipment installed in San Antonio, Texas.
