Our video of the week: C130 Air Drop
Equipment drop from a C-130 aircraft: The C-130 originates from Kandahar for support for coalition ground troops.
Scenes in the video include:
cargo being loaded onto the aircraft
the aircraft flying over mountainous terrain
and cargo being pushed out of the aircraft and parachuting to the ground.
Precision air re-supply to the ground has become an important element of USAF support to the ground forces.
