The town of Ouray, Colo. had a rare opportunity to witness a C-17 Globemaster fly over the town earlier today (Sept. 1).

The town of Ouray shared this video on their Facebook page showing a low-flying C-17 Globemaster buzzing the town.

The C-17 is a military transport jet use in tactical and strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo as well as medical evacuation.

The C-17 has also played a part in the presidency, transporting the presidential limo around the US and other countries. It also has transported the president and played the role of Air Force One.

It would have been best to see this in person, but the video will have to do for now.
