Description: Keiko, the killer whale star of the "Free Willy" movie, is weighed as he is loaded into his specially made transport tank at the Oregon State Aquarium, on Sept. 9, 1998. From there he will be transported by United Parcel Service to the Newport Municipal Airport in Newport, Oregon for loading into a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III. The aircraft from the 15th Airlift Squadron and its killer whale cargo will fly nonstop to the Westman Islands in Iceland. The Free Willy Keiko Foundation is paying the Air Force to airlift the whale back to his native waters. The C-17 Globemaster III is the only aircraft that can accomplish moving such a large load and deliver it to a short, remote runway. DoD photo by Master Sgt. Dave Nolan, U.S. Air Force. (Released)
