buzzed by a C-17 Globemaster :)
so every week, i drive 120 miles one way to see a doctor. i drive on arizona highway 95, north from yuma. half the drive is through Yuma Proving Grounds, a military test ground. see all kinds of cool stuff. convoys of giant marine trucks, Aerostats, ect.
yesterday, i was driving and i saw a c17 flying overhead, low enough my first though he was on final to land on the highway! sadly i have no pictures, but he folowed the highway for a few seconds, then did a 30 degree bank and was gone.
later he came back the other way, and did a wing wag. really cool to see so close!
edit: my only guess is he was on some kind of 'fly under the radar' kinda of training mission.

My home is located between two low level training routes, at a point where the routes are just a few miles apart. Usually it's just Navy or Air Force dedicated training planes, but occasionally a C130 or a C17 runs up the route. There's just something impressive about the big ones down low. Would love to see a B52 on a low level route out west!

My Wife and I own a home in Yucca Valley near 29 Palms and one day when my Dad and I were taking some trash to the local dump we got buzzed by a C-17 too! Pretty amazing to see one that low isn't it?
