Bloomfield Hills, MI, January 24, 2012 - (PressReleasePoint) - Global HeavyLift Holdings, a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) listed (www.ccr.gov) entity with principal offices in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, is commending Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill's strong recommendation to the FAA that it fast track commercial certification of Boeing's workhorse C-17 Globemaster III strategic/tactical airlifter.

"GHH is exceptionally pleased that the Senator has demonstrated once again her unwavering support for this superlative airlifter, and the viability, if not the urgency, of establishing a U.S./NATO-controlled Heavylift industry based on very modestly modified C-17s -designated BC-17- for commercial use", says Global HeavyLift Holdings Managing Member Myron D. Stokes. "The Senator's actions are all the more notable when one considers the extraordinary efforts put forth by various parties in government and industry, both here and abroad, to kill C-17 by any means necessary."

"TheSenators actions are all the more notable when one considers the extraordinary efforts put forth byvarious parties in government and industry, both here and abroad, to kill C-17 by any means necessary."Worlds Most Versatile Strategic/Tactical Airlifter: Boeing C-17 Globemaster III Image: USAFGlobal HeavyLift was founded in 2002 as a public persona of a public/private effort representing anatypically close collaboration between the U.S. Air Force, Boeing, themselves and other elements ofindustry at the direction of then SECAF Dr. James Roche. "The objective was to bring together theintellectual resources necessary to create a revamped (the first iteration of the strategy having been
  2. 2. ruled as inadequate) architecture for infrastructure of a new globe spanning industry, Heavylift, whileaugmenting airlift requirements in the aftermath of Congressionally ordered force reductions post ColdWar", says Stokes. "Heavylift, currently controlled by the Russians with their commercialized An-124Ruslan airlifter, is a subset of the air cargo industry that involves the movement of goods via air thatare too large or outsized (Heavy Outsized Market-HOM) to fit in any door of any 747 or similar sizedfreighter, along with the Short Austere Market (SAM) that exploits the extraordinary short andrough/unfinished field capabilities of C-17. This is ideal for direct to site movement of heavyequipment and other materiel into the often remote, virtually inaccessible by ground transport, areaswhere gold, gas, diamonds and oil are found. Commercial C-17 utilization not only accelerates sitepreparation, but enables a significantly reduced time to market", he said.A narrative of what was originally designated the CAMAA (Commercial Application of MilitaryAirlift Aircraft) is linked here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commercial_Application_of_Military_Airlift_...Stokes observes that up until now, the Russian/Ukrainian dominance of the Heavy and Outsized marketwas the primary concern, although not an insurmountable one. " It has always been GHH intent, asdemonstrated by the 2008 visit of one of its people to Russian leadership in Moscow, to work withthem in a symbiotic way that allowed exploitation of the specific operational characteristics of both theC-17 and An-124. The currently out of production Ruslan, while capable of carrying more outsizedmateriel and is quite robust, simply cant go where the Globemaster can and has - as proven in thecrucibles of Iraq and Afghanistan. Working in tandem, however, there is no let project anywhere onearth that cannot be serviced by these aircraft."China C-17 Clone?The new twist, Stokes says, is Chinas reported roll-out of its pre-production C-17 clone. "This newairlifter, based on plans stolen by Chinese operatives in the same timeframe as the acquisition ofextensive technological and manufacturing data associated with the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defensesystem along with F-22 and F-35, was projected to make its appearance in five to six years, as noted inan analysis presented to a Congressional committee in 2006. Moreover, there is every expectationChina will seek to dominate the Heavy and Outsized market in the same way they have carved out anexceptionally, and perhaps uncomfortably, strong presence in the global air cargo operations throughextensive acquisition of B-747 aircraft of all configurations", Stokes says. "Add this to their all butabsolute control of ocean borne shipping -a clear and continuing concern to national securitystrategists- and one can understand the urgency of the FAA moving on this certification which can becompleted within 12 months.New ArchitectureIn anticipation of certification and permissions from involved Federal agencies including the StateDepartment, GHH is revising its internal architecture, and has also advised its legal representation toincorporate in Delaware. "This new architecture will allow more flexibility in terms of anticipatedglobal operations", Stokes added, "And minimize the complexities of interaction with the financialsectors of multiple countries expected to serve as bases for GHH Air Operations Epicenters. In linewith this, GHH financial advisors are already reaching out to those financial entities both here andabroad who survived the global economic meltdown of 2008, particularly those who were instrumentalin creating GHHs comprehensive 30-year business plan."As noted in previous releases, GHH has identified and has access to, financial instruments with a valueup to USD5Billion. "We will leverage these instruments to help accomplish the mission outlined 11years ago, inclusive of non-traditional aircraft acquisition methodologies as alluded to in the 2007SpeedNews Jonathan Club Aerospace-Defense conference presentation in Los Angeles," Stokes said.He noted that despite the vigorous and continuous assaults on C-17s continued production, the bulk of
  3. 3. which were based on flawed data, the GHH team remained confident that this indispensable airlifterwould retain the mantle as primary resident of the Long Beach plant. "The reasons for our contendingwith those who sought C-17s -and Boeings- demise were quite simple: No C-17, no heavylift."Over the past 5 years, GHH representation -drawn from some of the best and brightest in industry andgovernment- have traveled the world to assess potential bases in Europe, Asia and the Middle East."Through the efforts of GHH Director of Middle East Operations, Benjamin Ballout, an agreement wassecured with the Sultanate of Oman", says Stokes. This long time friend of the United States datingback to the 19th century Barbary Pirate Wars, is not only a profoundly strategic location, but ispopulated by a people of great intellect, solid values and ruled by a leader with clear vision. Ive beenimpressed with Sultan Qaboos since first becoming aware of him nearly 3 decades ago."Also, there are active discussions with an Asian nation possessed of similar qualities, and expect tohave an agreement by second quarter 2012. And, now that the Long Beach and St. Louis productionfacilities, along with the supplier base, are secure until at least 2014, all involved parties canconcentrate on global implementation of the HeavyLift initiative, and the rather significant economicstimulus benefits to participant countries", he said.Previous releases: http://www.slideshare.net/GHHLLC/global-heavylift-holdings-llc-asks-boeing-c17-detractors-to-produce-internal-dod-analyses-supporting-kill-effortshttp://www.pressrelease365.com/pr/industry/military-and-defense/boeing-c17-2010-congressional-budget-dod-usaf-airlift-3650.htmhttp://asimov52.wordpress.com/tag/global-heavylift-holdings-pushes-for-120-boeing-c-17s-for-2012-2020-dod-budgets/About Global HeavyLift HoldingsFounded in 2002, GHH is a strategic air transport solutions entity that was born of a multi-yearpublic/private effort among forward thinkers in both the private sector and government to mitigateemerging and observable vulnerabilities in the U.S. industrial base global supply chain. Suchvulnerabilities are represented by the fact that no ocean-borne shipping is in U.S. hands at present, thuspotentially subjecting American corporations, especially automotive, and their global operations to thewhims and perhaps economically hostile activities of and by foreign governments. Add to this the riskof terrorist activities, which have, according to the Department of Homeland Security, targetedmaritime operations; i.e., ships, ports and ocean containers.Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) listed, (ccr.gov/) it is the goal of GHH and its strategic partnersaround the planet to work with key logistics personnel within these corporations and governmentagencies to conceptualize, craft and structure long-term global supply chain alternative transportationmethodologies through continuous -- not stop gap or emergency -- air augmentation solutions. Its mostimportant mission, however, has been in the co-development of global architecture for infrastructure ofa new American controlled industry, Heavylift, utilizing the excellent airlift performancecharacteristics of the Boeing BC-17.Global HeavyLift Holdings Commends Senator McCaskills Request For Commercial Certification ofBoeing C-17 (BC-17) From FAARelated Links eMOTION!
