AVIANO AIR BASE, Italy -- A C-17 Globemaster III from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., landed at Aviano Air Base on a mission in support of Operation Odyssey Dawn on March 20, 2011. 

Joint Task Force Odyssey Dawn is the U.S. Africa Command task force established to support the larger international response to the unrest in Libya. A broad coalition of nations are partnering to enforce U.N. Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1973, which authorizes all necessary means to protect civilians in Libya under threat of attack by Qadhafi regime forces. 

Joint Base Lewis-McChord is home to the active duty 62nd Airlift Wing and the Air Force Reserve's 446th Airlift Wing. Both wings operate the C-17 Globemaster III.
