Air Force Hockey Team rides in a C-17 to their hockey game


The Air Force Academy varsity athletes have to be some of the few that hardly ever fly commercially when going to play games, and it must save them a fortune.

When Air Force came to Ann Arbor to play football earlier this year, I met some of the cadets that were at the Academy and they showed me a photo of them also flying on a C-17 to the game.  I guess when you have plenty of aircrafts on your campus, you might as well utilize them.

    FACT: There are no C-17′s “on campus”.The biggest planes “on campus” (that fly) hold 10 cadets and 8 of them jump out. Most are 2 seat flight trainers.

      So then would a plane like this be up at Fort Carson or somewhere else?
