Boeing Modifies 5th C-17 For Royal Air Force

Structural mechanic Richard Flores labels fasteners to be removed from a United Kingdom C-17 as part of the Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) modification at the Boeing [NYSE: BA] facility in San Antonio.

The C-17 being modified is the fifth in the Royal Air Force fleet. The aircraft was delivered in February at Boeing's production facility in Long Beach, Calif., then flown directly to San Antonio to undergo the modification before entering service. The LAIRCM system provides added safety for C-17 aircrews that fly into harm's way.
