Yes... thanks for sharing this exemplary and superlative photo capture with us!

*F*I*V*E* Stars!!!

BTW, the 172nd AW, based at Allen C. Thompson Field ANG Base and co-located at KJAN, Jackson, MS, swapped their aging Lockheed C-141C Starlifters for the current fleet of C-17A Globemaster III aircraft. Circa 2003 thru 2004, if I recall correctly.

That initial C-17 a/c as delivered, USAF s/n 02-1112, was named "Spirit of the Minutemen". From the unit's fact sheet and history, "C-17A -1112 is also the first Globemaster assigned to the Air National Guard".
