Boeing Globemaster III (03-3121)
Boeing C-17A Globemaster III 03-3121 of the 412th Test Wing at Edwards Air Force Base om October 21, 2005.
Brian - I "captured" this same C-17, USAF s/n 03-3121, on 35mm film back in 2005. It was parked on the ramp and on static display during the 2005 "Defenders of Liberty" airshow at Barksdale AFB!
is that a LAPES exercise?
Yes, John. The C-130's practice this also.
This is an ordinary parachute cargo drop. LAPES is performed just above the ground without a parachute other than the one that pulls it out of the caro bay. The cargo just drops to the ground and slides.
