USAF Emergency Evac Flight C 17 Tacloban to Manila
Published December 4, 2013 | By John Vervoort
If you feel ‘cramped’ flying in coach on your next trip — remember this picture!
(Tacloban is the city in the Philippine Islands where over 5000 died when Typhoon Haiyan came ashore in early November)
This is onboard one of the US Air Force’s C-17 on one of the evacuation trips from Tacloban to Manila.
Thanks to Colonel Byron Hill for sharing.
Well done, Air Force. I am retired military and we can fly Space Available on US Military Airplanes. My wife and I often fly this aircraft. We came back from Spain last week on a C-17. It was not quite this crowded, although it was carrying a C-47 Helo.
