Why should fighter planes get all the love? That’s the question the Air Force Academy seems to address with its newest alternate uniforms.

For a game against Hawai’i on Oct. 19, the Falcons will wear alternate uniforms that honor the C-17 military transport aircraft, used to move troops and supplies.

Aged cayenne peppers bring the heat, while molasses and honey inject the sweet into our Fiery Sweet Wing Sauce. For a dash of daring deliciousness, give it a shot.

On Thursday morning, CFB insider Brett McMurphy tweeted out pictures of the new uniform, which is all gray and features slick new helmets:

It’ll be awesome to see these uniforms in action on Oct. 19, and it’s sort of ironic that they’ll wear their gray, black and white uniforms against a team called the “Rainbow Warriors.”

Military alternate uniforms are always some of the coolest, and this latest effort from Air Force certainly fits the bill.
