There are many things that I disagree with Mr. Peters on but not this article. It may sound strange coming from a career Air Force man but I'm the guy who loaded the "pickups" as he put it. While we need a few Ferraris we definitely need more pickups in this new era. We need more C-17s as they are the workhorses that project our power, along with the Navy's carriers. But cargo planes aren't as glamorous as fighter planes sad to say.
