McDonnell Douglas Globemaster III 90-0535 climbs away from the former MiG training base at Tuzla, Bosnia-Herzogovina, after delivering another load of vital equipment, supplies and vehicles to our Operation Joint Endeavor peace keeping troops. Beginning operations from Rhein Main Air Base, Germany in December 1995, the C-17 was the only U.S. airlifter capable of carrying outsize equipment and cargo as well as passengers into the limited facilities at Tuzla, the main staging area for the U.S. peace keeping force. The artist was privileged to participate in nine missions, involving eighteen sorties into Tuzla and Sarajevo in eight days during January 1996. He was impressed with the C-17s ability to carry huge loads into the most difficult areas, in the unforgiving weather, and do so with better than a 95 percent departure reliability rate.*
