    OVER AFGHANISTAN - The new GPS guided Screamer 2K bundle, Joint Precision Air Drop System, floats to the ground after being dropped from the back of a C-130 Hercules over Afghanistan Aug. 26, 2006. The drop was made from 17,500 feet above mean sea level, and was the first joint Air Force/Army operational drop of JPADS in the Central Command Area of Responsibility. Four bundles were dropped from the Alaska Air National Guard C-130. The system is designed to provide precision airdrops from high altitudes, elimination the treat of small arms fire. All four bundles arrived at the drop zone, re-supplying Army troops on the ground with ammunition and water. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Brian Ferguson)
