Afghanistan airdrops surpass record levels in 2011

A parachute bundle with the Joint Precision Air Drop System is dropped from a C-130J Hercules to a remote forward operating base on Nov. 27, 2011. JPADS uses Global Positioning System navigation to guide parachute bundles to precise drop zones, minimizing collateral damage, troops' ground travel, and the vulnerability of the aircraft.
