Pallets from the Sky

Aircrew Airmen from the 700th Airlift Squadron, Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia recently provided air drop supplies during a three-day mission over the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea in support of Joint Interagency Task Force operations.  Two pallets of fuel and food were released from a C-130 Hercules aircraft as part of the concept operation, deploying parachutes to slow their fall.
