C-17 in action

The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is a large military transport aircraft. The C-17 commonly performs strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world; additional roles include tactical airlift, medical evacuation and airdrop duties.


A C-17 was used to carry Kal-El's spaceship to Metropolis where it was to be used as a bomb against General Zod's Black Zero ship where it would create a temporary portal to the Phantom Zone.

The C-17's run was protect by several Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II's which, as they approached, were taken out by General Zod flying the Fortress of Solitude which contained the Genesis Chamber. Faora-Ul then jump aboard and killed the attacking military and before she could kill Colonel Hardy, Emil Hamilton managed to figure out how to activate the ships Phantom Drive using the Command Key which triggered the portal and sent both crafts and anything in the immediate vicinity into the Phantom Zone.
