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.
