Yep, here's the takeoff. You can bet that it was a different pilot than the one who made the landing.

Air Force C-17 Globemaster Takeoff From Peter O'Knight Airport (1 min 10 sec)

I got to try something new today. F3J launch. Our friend Bob McGowan is in the US team competing in S. Africa (Wow-wie!), and he invited the club out to help him practice. It's a two-to-one pulley setup with a couple strong pullers on the other end. Line breaks are terrifying, they sound like a pistol, and the pullers usually end up on their duffs. The launches are amazing! The next time I try, though, I'm not going to pick a pro bicycle racer as my tug buddy. He was pulling me AND the plane!

Photos in a bit.
