22 de avioane uriase de transport s-au aliniat pe pista aerodromului, decoland toate intr-un interval de numai 36 de minute.
Au participat sapte aparate C-17 Globemaster III, 11 KC-10 Extender si patru C-5B Galaxy, toate apartinand 60th Air Mobility Wing.
Intreaga “distractie” a costat aproximativ 456.000 de dolari, multi intrebandu-se daca era necesara o comemorare atat de scumpa a evenimentelor din septembrie 2001.

22 huge cargo planes lined up on the tarmac at Travis AFB, taking off in just 36 minutes.
At this impressive exercise took part seven C-17 Globemaster III, 11 KC-10 Extenders and four C-5B Galaxies, all from the 60th Air Mobility Wing.
There were plenty of voices who said that spending almost 456.000 dollars on an useless commemorative exercise is just stupid.
