C-130J Airdrop


    A C-130J Super Hercules and its aircrew assigned to the 774th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, perform a tactical airdrop of supplies to an undisclosed location in Afghanistan, April 20, 2018. The C-130J is capable of operating from rough dirt strips and is the prime transport for airdropping troops and equipment into hostile areas. The flexible design allows it to be configured for many different missions, allowing one aircraft to perform the role of many. (U.S. Air Force video by Senior Airman Nathan Stout)
