This engraved Glass Block commemorates the 100th Boeing C-17 Aircraft delivered in 2002. BAE Systems supplies the twin Head Up Displays which are a unique high integrity design.

The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is a large military transport aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) from the 1980s to the early 1990s by McDonnell Douglas. The C-17 commonly performs strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world; additional roles include tactical airlift, medical evacuation and airdrop duties.

Boeing, which merged with McDonnell Douglas in the 1990s, continued to manufacture C-17s for export customers following the end of deliveries to the U.S. Air Force.
