Hanging out in Long Beach

We've been in Long Beach the past couple of days. So far we've had a few guest visits and provided aerial coverage for the UCLA/Arizona Football game today. Long Beach Airport is an extremely busy airport with a lot of helicopters and flight training going on in addition to the commercial and corporate jets. Boeing also has two facilities at the airport. They use to manufacture 717's there and still manufacture C-17's for the US Air Force. One of these C-17's did a flyby before leaving the airport yesterday on a test flight. I was fortunate enough to get this great picture of it on take off and a video of the low pass.
