The 279th and last C-17 Globemaster III built in Long Beach departed Long Beach Airport just before 11 a.m. this morning. The plane is flying to San Antonio before being delivered to Qatar. One last C-17 built prior to No. 279 will be flying out later this month as The Boeing Company officially shuts down its final assembly plant.
