The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) has signed a £260 million agreement with the US government to support the Royal Air Force’s (RAF's) C-17 aircraft, the UK MoD announced on 17 February.

The foreign military sale agreement will run until 2022 and will deliver spares, design services, reliability and maintenance improvements, access to technical resources, and RAF aircrew and maintenance crew training programmes for the RAF’s fleet of eight C-17A Globemaster III aircraft.

The C-17 provides the RAF with long-range strategic heavy-lift ability including the delivery of equipment and supplies to UK forces on operations.
