C-17: Who really, really, really likes this aircraft?

1. Yes, I do like the C-17, RT you know I am always an admirer of your pictures and I am impatiently waiting for the things to come!
2. No, I hate this butt-ugly aircraft but we all here know you, RT, as a cruel and ruthless person who won't care about our objection.

I've been in the back of these things a couple of times now, and I must say they are a pleasure to be in after riding Herk's and Wallaby's let me tell you!
Ah and you can sleep like a baby on a flight!
Unfortunately I would like to have seen one of the slightly smaller (and one hope a cheaper!) YC-14 or YC-15 put into production and service!
