Watch: Joint Base Lewis-McChord C-17 makes gear-up emergency landing in Afghanistan (
A C-17 Globemaster with markings of two Joint Base Lewis-McChord units made an emergency landing at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan earlier this month. There were no injuries, and enemy activity was not involved, according to a statement from U.S. Forces in Afghanistan spokesman Col. Sonny Leggett. A video posted online Monday shows the C-17 landing with its nose gear still up. In the video, posted on YouTube by Country Living with MD, the landing gear doors are open but the gear itself was not lowered.   The C-17 landed on its rear landing gear and eased down onto the nose as it slowed to a stop.
