Updating and repairing the planes can be done anywhere, no need to maintain the entire Long Beach plant to keep a few dozen greybeards employed.

1. Open a repair facility in one of the countries that has purchased C-17s, such as India or Qatar.

2. Offer jobs to 100 Long Beach employees, provided they commit to working overseas for the next 9 years and learn the local language. Maximum age as of 2013: 58.

3. Close the Long Beach plant, sell it for housing.

It's a win-win situation.
