Since they are persona non-grata in the Gulf States Cooperation Council their 8 C-17's wont be up too much. Qatar is about 1/6th the size of Tasmania. They only bought 8 because the UAE bought eight. It is show pony stuff. Boeing stockholders did well though and that is about all. They will likely sit in the desert and be flown around empty every once and awhile. Maybe we could pay for a couple of C-5M's before the RERP runs down the clock and swap them for a couple of C-17's with a cash difference. We get two C-17's put to actual constant good use for the benefit of free world and they get a couple of huge aircraft even bigger than what the UAE have to self congratulate themselves over. Everyones happy. The kind of crazy deal Trump might get off on.
