AP Photo/Kevin Lamarque - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton walks from her C-17 military transport upon her arrival in Tripoli, Libya on Tuesday.

Here’s a nice shot of a Joint Base Lewis-McChord Air Force crew delivering Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Tripoli this week.

Clinton visited the country to offer assistance from the Obama administration and to encourage its new leaders to commit to democracy.

The C-17 Globemaster III behind her shows it belongs to McChord Air Field’s 62nd Airlift Wing.

Capt. Allison Kojack, a spokeswoman for the 62nd, confirmed that the crew included airmen from her unit and McChord’s 446th Reserve Airlift Wing.
