The Air Force safety investigation board looking into the July 28, 2010 crash of a C-17 transport near JB Elmendorf, Alaska, convened on Aug. 2, 2010, to begin its inquiry, according to an Elmendorf spokesman. The C-17 went down shortly after takeoff from Elmendorf on a training flight, killing the four airmen aboard. It was the first fatal flight mishap of a USAF C-17. The aircraft was assigned to Elmendorf's 3rd Wing. Shown here is the aircraft's wreckage, including its tail (upper image).
