C-17A Globemaster III over Cornwall

Living near to Newquay Airport I see a lot of aircraft taking off and landing, and although RAF St Mawgan ceased major operations a couple of years ago they still have some operations there which include training, and yesterday this aircraft spent some time flying over my home every 5-10 minutes. It wasn't always quite as close as this, but every time I could hear it approaching I grabbed the camera and rushed outside and some of the pics were quite good. I'm not sure what the plane is, but I'm sure someone out there will tell me!
