Anthony Fuller, loadmasters assigned to the 816th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron, make final safety checks to airdrop bundles in the cargo bay of a C-17 Globemaster III, Sept 30, 2011. Jensen, Fuller and the other crew members of the C-17 air dropped these 40 bundles to a remote outpost in Afghanistan.
