The C-17 had a requirement to land on an unimproved runway.  So sometime around 1994, I was at Bicycle Lake in Fort Irwin watching a C-17 land.  Bike Lake was similar to this video, and when the C-17 landed and put on its thrust reversers, it generated a dust and sand cloud that was so large the huge plane disappeared.  When I was certain it had come to a stop, I drove the rental car into the dense cloud looking for the darn plane.  I eventually found it, but in the process, the car wound up with a thick layer of dust on the inside.  Fortunately, Avis didn't charge me a cleaning fee.

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.
