C-17 Air Drop

On the fist pass, 16 bundles are dropped from the lead C-17 Globemaster III to a drop zone in Afghanistan, Oct. 11. A total of 62 cargo bundles were dropped from two C-17s. This was the first time a combat cargo drop of this magnitude has taken place from two C-17s in formation over one drop zone. The planes and crews are part of the 817th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron, Manas, Kyrgyzstan. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Brian Ferguson)
