We had a visitor on Thursday.  The flight was a simulated air drop over Ouray.  This area is much like foreign mountainous countries where the Air Force has to fly.  The plane was a C-17 Cargo plane.  It is a very large cargo plane which can hold two tanks, several airplanes (wings removed) and many troops.  It was good to see a fine performance of our military that was given us today.  It was a perfect decent from high altitudes through the valley between the mountains and a perfect drop of goods on Ouray.  Unfortunately, I had a camera malfunction after only a few shots.  It was amazing to watch the precision with which the pilot brought the planes through the valleys and out the north end of town.
