This stirring band work was inspired by the composer’s visit to the Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover, Delaware, which houses a Starlifter for display. First launched in 1963 to carry large military equipment loads by the Air Force, the C-141 was an essential piece of military equipment for 40 years. The piece begins as the aircraft speeds down the runway, before an exciting fanfare announces its ascent into the clouds. Use this melodically and rhythmically uplifting piece to open or close any concert in a riproaring way!
