Air drop training

Two container delivery systems are jettisoned out the back of a C-130H Hercules aircraft assigned to the 103rd Airlift Wing during an aerial drop training mission at the "bean bag" drop zone, Westover Air Reserve Base, Chicopee, Massachusetts, on July 12, 2014. The systems being released consist of four barrels filled with water weighing about 700 pounds and a high-velocity parachute tethered to the system allowing for safe descent to the ground.
