Youngstown Citizen Airmen ready for airdrop training flight

YOUNGSTOWN AIR RESERVE STATION, Ohio – A 3600 pound Heavy Airdrop Platform sits on the flightline here, March 8, 2015. Citizen Airmen, assigned to the 76th Aerial Port Squadron, prepared the parachute-equipped pallet, which simulates heavy equipment, for loading aboard a 910th Airlift Wing C-130H Hercules aircraft for an airdrop training mission. The wing uses their C-130 aircraft during combat operations, including low-level infiltration flights, to deliver personnel and materials by airdrop or air-land methods as part of their wartime tasking and to conduct humanitarian relief efforts.
