Titel: Nieuw-Zeeland overweegt ook aanschaf C-17?
Bericht door: andré herc op 14/01/2015 | 21:46 uur
For some weeks now there has been controversy surrounding the replacement of the Air Force's ageing fleet of Hercules C-130 aircraft, the oldest of which will be 50 in April.

This is a weighty decision, the type of which is made only two or three times a century and will have implications for decades to come.

Most notably, Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee has apparently asked for costings for the massive Boeing C-17 Globemaster, a proven strategic airlifter, at a suggested cost per plane of $400 million.
