Boeing is celebrating their 100th C-17, scheduled to be rolled out with an October delivery to the U.S. Air Force. “For this 100th plane, Boeing is celebrating each major stage of assembly. About 35 events are planned, along with celebrations with each of the C-17’s top 30 suppliers.” We’re proud of Huck’s contribution.
