    Default The Amazing C-17

    From AXIOS.COM:

    "A C-17 cargo plane set a record by safely transporting 823 Afghan citizens — 200 more than originally thought — from the international airport in Kabul after the city was seized by the Taliban on Sunday.

    823 passengers is an all-time record for a military aircraft that usually carries 134 passengers, including 54 on side seats and 80 on pallets on the floor."

    Carrying scrawny pax rather than highly-equipped troops? Numbers not really surprising. `specialy as there were also 64 kids among the 823 who weigh less than hydrogen breaking wind.
    What more can you tell me about the weight?
