The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) operates eight Boeing C-17 Globemaster III large transport aircraft. All of them are assigned to No. 36 Squadron based at RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland. The aircraft have supported ADF operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and other locations in the Middle East, as well as training exercises in Australia and the United States. They have also transported supplies and personnel as part of relief efforts following natural disasters in Australia, Japan, New Zealand and several other countries. The C-17s are highly regarded throughout the Australian military for their ability to carry large amounts of cargo across long distances, and the process through which they were acquired has been identified as an example of good practice in defence procurement.

McDonnell Douglas C-17A Globemaster III

Designed by McDonnell Douglas as a military transport aircraft, the C-17 Globemaster III was first flown on September 15, 1991. This enormous aircraft is used for strategic airlift of cargo and troops, and is capable of rapidly deploying and sustaining combat troops in potential battle areas. Among its many additional uses are medical evacuation, airdrop and tactical airlift. Powered by four reversible turbofan engines, the C-17 requires a crew of just three (a pilot, copilot and loadmaster). Its maximum payload is 170,900 pounds and it is capable of carrying and dropping 102 paratroopers and their equipment.

Gemini's 1:200 scale C-17 is a large and heavy model in this scale (over two pounds) and is constructed almost entirely of solid diecast metal. The heavy wide-body fuselage features an all around seamless construction with pad-printed windows and door and is supported on an all metal fix landing gear with soft rubber tires. Both hinged cargo bay doors articulate at the rear of the model with large actuating pistons mounted to the loading ramp visible when displayed in the open position. Additional details include solid metal wings with exceptionally detailed turbo fan engines and an all metal empennage topped with a glimmering jewel-cut anti-collision lens.
