C-17 Air Drop

Spc. Joshua Black, left, attaches one of 62 parachute ripcords to the static line of a C-17 Globemaster III at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, while crew members continue to load bundles. The 62 cargo bundles were dropped from two C-17s, Oct. 11, to a drop zone in Afghanistan. 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. Black is a rigger with the 11th Quartermaster Company, 82nd Airborne.
