    A package with donated goods suspended from a parachute falls from a C-130J Super Hercules during Operation Christmas Drop Dec. 11, 2017 above the island of Fais. Christmas Drop is the world's longest running airdrop mission. For the third year in a row, U.S., Japanese and Australian aircrews trained alongside each other while providing critical supplies to 56 Micronesian islands impacting about 20,000 people covering 1.8 million square nautical miles of operating area. The C-130 is assigned to the 36th Airlift Squadron at Yokota Air Base, Japan. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander W. Riedel)
