Posted 12 December 2012 · Add Comment

Boeing has delivered the Qatar Emiri Air Force's fourth C-17 Globemaster III in Long Beach. The delivery reflects Qatar's agreement with the US government to acquire two additional C-17s.

Boeing C17This brings the Qatar Emiri Air Force (QEAF) fleet of the world’s most advanced airlifters to a total of four as the C-17 continues to attract orders worldwide. Qatar received its third airlifter earlier this year.
 
Qatar’s C-17s earlier this year supported the NATO-led operation in Libya and provided relief for drought victims in Kenya. In early 2010, QEAF C-17s delivered humanitarian aid to Haiti and Chile following devastating earthquakes.
 
Qatar, the first Middle East nation to order the C-17, signed an agreement with Boeing on July 21, 2008, for two advanced airlifters and associated equipment and services, with options for two additional aircraft. Boeing delivered Qatar’s first two C-17s in 2009.
