U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Harold Mitchell in the cockpit of the 120th C-17Boeing employees got an earful of praise from U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Harold "Mitch" Mitchell on May 25 when he accepted delivery of the 120th C-17 during ceremonies at Boeing Integrated Defense Systems in Long Beach, Calif.

"I've got to tell you how humble I feel standing here in front of a group of Boeing employees and suppliers who bring this magical airplane to life," said Mitchell, who is mobilization assistant to the commander, 18th Air Force at Scott Air Force Base, Ill. "I was raised on a small farm near Beaufort, S.C., and vividly remember plowing fields in back of a mule as a young boy-and here I am today going to take a C-17 off to war.

"I had the opportunity to tour the C-17 assembly line earlier today and I was very impressed by the people working on the line," Mitchell said.

"Thank you for all you do. You build a great airplane. I am blessed to be able to fly them. And, by the way, we need more of them."

After the ceremony, Mitchell flew the aircraft to McChord Air Force Base, Wash.
